If it were obvious what exactly the problem was under ZFS that doesn't=20=
=20
appear=20under UFS, then I might have been able to solve it. "It just=20=20
doesn't=20work" (tm), there is a command (which logically must exist)=20=20
needed=20to make the environment right at that step that I couldn't=20=20
find,=20and I'm not trying to solve that one today.

But 1) yes, sometimes the received wisdom that something different is=20=20
better=20isn't true; and 2) no, apparently even the new UEFI loader=20=20
still=20doesn't work on that notebook (thanks Asus, for going that extra=20=
=20
ten=20miles to make it so weird and non-conforming), so with some=20=20
disgust,=20I'm going to something else on that notebook for now because=20=
=20
I'm=20going out of town today and didn't have all week to solve this.
