  I think that isn't my problem.  I believe I have that in my loader.conf (is there a "cat" equivalent in the boot loader?), and I can see zfs.ko being loaded:

Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf 
Loading /boot/loader.conf 
/boot/kernel/kernel data=0x682758+0xa9ef0 syms=[0x8+0x8bef0+0x8+0x84bfa]

Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt.
Booting [/boot/kernel/kernel] in 4 seconds... 

  I think this means that I have zfs_load="YES" in my loader config, already, along with the vfs.root.mountfrom="zfs:zroot"

  That all seem right?
