We should change the naming throughout zfsbootcfg to call it 'bootonce', since 'nextboot' is a different feature, and this will get confusing when we combine the two

Instead of doing this here, we can use the new IOCTL from upstream where looping over and writing to each label is done inside the kernel

As we progress here, we will want a switch to maintain the legacy behaviour, at least for a while. We might even decide not to change the default right away.

Shouldn't this be += as otherwise we'll return the status for the last child only?
