Houston we have a problem.

I have successfully updated several systems using this method so I updated a
a pair of production systems.  One had a jail that was created with warden.
I didn't think to test on a !prod jail box.  The jail is now gone.  All the
partitions are there on the drive including all databases, but warden list
shows nothing.  Is this recoverable or did I just blow away a prod jail?
