[PC-BSD Dev] More ZFS odd behaviors

I did another experiment:
I took a different VM in VirtualBox, I removed all harddrives (including 
the system disk, so we can discard any information that could've been 
cached in the zpool.cache file or something).
Then I added one of the (corrupted?) .VDI disks to the VM and tried to 
boot the install DVD: same crash.

This proves that there's some magic bytes written in the disk that can 
crash the ZFS code in the bootloader.
