I hate it when this happens.
After sending this I found a Sun document describing the on disk zfs format. That gave me the needed clues.
The solution is to wipe the slices reported as corrupted using a "dd if=/dev/zero".

From something I did several years
ago "zpool import" reports a zfs-8000-5e error on my system
for a 2 slice mirror (c0d0s9 & c1d0s9). I would
like to make the message go away. There is nothing to
recover and the slices referenced are too small to form a
new pool and cannot be enlarged.
I've searched in vain for an explanation of how to make this
go away or a hint as to where zpool was getting the
I've tried every zpool subcommand that seems as if it might
be relevant usually w/ a "pool does not exist" result.
Does anyone have any insight, hints or suggestions?
Where does zfs hide this info?
