I resolved this by umounting everything, clearing down the mountpoints and

Thanks to Chris Banal who suggested "zfs umount -a" and then removing all
the mount points after which the filesystems mount fine. Interesting thing
is that Chris also saw this after patching so maybe the Live Upgrade work
was relevant after all.

I've rebooted a couple of times since and its been fine so something to look
out for on the next patching phase I guess.
