ZFS: One or more devices could not be used

After updating a server from Ubuntu Server 13.04 to 13.10 I got the following scary error from ZFS:

  pool: tank
 state: FAULTED
status: One or more devices could not be used because the the label is missing 
        or invalid.  There are insufficient replicas for the pool to continue
action: Destroy and re-create the pool from a backup source.

zpool export tank
zpool import -f tank
zfs mount -a
