 Thinkpad x201 with pcbsd full-disk zfs installation.
 While I hadn't used it for a couple of days, I booted the machine the day
 before yesterday. It installed package updates and then informed about a
 conversion to a new pbi system.
 All appeared to go smoothly until the reboot.
 The machine is currently unusable, grub panics into rescue shell telling:

 error: symbol 'grub_term_highlight_color' not found.
 Entering rescue mode...
 grub rescue>

 I tried booting from stick in order to edit grubs config, but could't
 mount the fs.
 Googling revealed that Debian folks went through exactly the same
 calamities a couple of months ago. Hence it appears to be a known bug in
 Anyway it keeps me from using pcbsd and accessing my data.
 Please advise!
