Default mountroot prompt after update

I have FreeBSD9-CURRENT_amd64 installed on ZFS only.
Just updated src and rebuilt world and kernel. Now I cannot make installworld because system failed to mount zroot after first reboot.

/boot/loader.conf and /etc/fstab look unchanged, fstab has no mount point for zfs. AHCI mode in BIOS is unchanged. Everything looks the same as before the update. I tried to boot from /boot/kernel.old/ and even /boot/kernel.good/ with same drop to mountroot>.
Of course I tried mountroot>zfs:zroot with all the kernels available and not luck at all.

What could the reason?
Is it possible to rescue the system?
FreeBSD 9-CURRENT_amd64, zfs v.4, zpool v.15.
