Actually, this is much worse.  Even 8.3 zfsutils (or zfsutils-udeb)
has the same problem (it confuses a partition with its container), the
only difference is that zfsutils 8.2 prints broken "zpool status"
output, whereas zfsutils 8.3 doesn't.  Breakage in 8.3 can be exposed
with:

$ zpool create test /dev/ada0s1
$ zpool export test
$ zpool import
pool: test
....
state: FAULTED
status: One or mode devices contains corrupted data.
...
config:
   test FAULTED corrupted data
     ada0  UNAVAIL corrupted data

It seems that the "zpool import" hack I introduced in the process of
fixing #651720 was picking up remnants of a previous pool with the
same name, which was indeed broken. I worked around it by creating a
clean pool on ada0 and then destroying it.

The fix I'm committing to partman-zfs will use GUIDs, avoiding this problem.
