I would use boot environments if you are zfs root so you can fail back
easily. I would also use a src build as that will definitely work.

eg

beadmn create -e old_root new_root
beadmn mount new_root /mnt
export DESTDIR=/mnt
cd /usr/src
make -j 12 buildworld &&
  make -j 12 buildkernel &&
  make installworld &&
  make installkernel &&
  mergemaster &&
  beadmn umount new_root &&
  beadmn activate new_root

later on init 6
