Description

Using 2.5.0-DEVELOPMENT when I do an install that creates a zfs mirror (MBR), the boot directory is actually a symlink to the boot directory in the bootpool pool. As soon as I do an upgrade to a newer build the boot directory symlink is overwritten and a directory called boot is created. The boot directory in bootpool goes out of sync with the boot directory that is now physically present on the zroot pool. This causes issues with kernel module mismatches etc.
