building and installing the GENERIC kernel did not do anything.
I can confirm BE r364030-OpenZFS booted with GENERIC but I got dropped
into the mountroot prompt again.
Before I got there I saw:

Trying to mount root from zfs:zroot/ROOT/r364030-OpenZFS failed with
error 2: unknown file system.

Guess I'll try to install sysutils/openzfs from ports next.
