My experience has always been that ZFS tries hard to keep you from doing something wrong when devices are failing or otherwise unavailable. With mirrors, it will import with a device missing from a mirror vdev. I don't use cache or log devices in my mainly storage pools, so I've not seen a failure with a "required" device like that missing. But, I've seen problems with a raid-z missing and the pool not coming on line.
As Richard says, it would seem there is a cache or log vdev missing since it is showing 1 of 2 mirrored devices in that vdev missing, but still complaining about a missing device. The older OS and ZFS version may in fact have a misbehavior due to some error condition not being correctly managed.
