I have a GPT partition table. I am using UEFI bios. My rootfs is ZFS and Solaris root partition type. I need to set my kernel to handle EFI.

http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/EFI_stub_kernel

Code:
UEFI does not pass kernel parameters to the kernel during normal boot, so you need to hardcode them via CONFIG_CMDLINE. Example for the root partition on /dev/sda2:
 [Collapse] Kernel configurationEnable built-in kernel parameters
Processor type and features  --->
    [*] Built-in kernel command line
    (root=/dev/sda2)


My ZFS is rpool/ROOT/roots. What would I enter for the Built-in kernel command line?

As far as I understand, CONFIG_CMDLINE is for embedded systems or systems without bootloaders, grub/lilo should pass the necessary arguments to the kernel.
