'zfs import' or 'zfs import rpool' gives me a long usage message that
scrolls offscreen before I can read it, and being at the console I have
no way to backscroll it. Redirecting output to a file doesn't work.
'zfs import -h' gives me a short usage message that's not very
informative, but suggested the usage 'zfs import-a'. that didn't import
anything, and got me the long usage message again.
The Belenix suggestion looks worth trying. I'm going to give it a shot
and see if it works. I'm frustrated that I can't seem to get any closer
to figuring out why the boot filesystems won't mount.
