Bug Description

The bpool status is confusing. Should I upgrade the pool or is it on purpose that the bpool is like this. I do no like to see this warning after installing the system on ZFS from scratch.

Do NOT upgrade your bpool.

The dangerous warning is a known issue. There has been talk of an upstream feature that would allow a nice fix for this, but nobody has taken up implementing it yet. I wonder how hard it would be to temporarily patch zpool status / zpool upgrade to not warn about / upgrade a pool named bpool.

We wrote on another bug report BertN45 to not upgrade your bpool. Only power users will use zpool status command to list and we expect them to know the implication.

I think I'll retarget this bug for preventing bpool upgrade.
