The device IDs created by vioblk are based on the serial number provided by QEMU, if any. If the serial numbers aren't set the devids will all be the same. And that will confuse a lot of things, among them zpool(1m).
Perhaps vioblk should implement unique permanent fake devids similar to what sd(7d) does for really old disks.
