Use tree view for boot pool status page in new UI
System/Boot/Boot Pool Status shows the boot pool both by name "freenas-boot" and by device ID (/dev/ada0p2). These are the same device, and only one should be shown.

- Subject changed from Boot pool is shown twice in Boot Pool Status to Boot pool drives are shown twice in Boot Pool Status
The boot pool in the example was a single device, da0. freenas-boot (a GPT label) and da0p2 refer to the same thing, the single drive (well, partition) in the boot pool. There are multiple paths to that device. The way it is shown implies that these are actually two different devices in the pool. Showing this to the user as two line items is going to cause confusion. Showing one line per physical device would be better. The device paths are unique and are probably the thing to display. We could add a column for GPT labels if that will be helpful to the user.
If you mean we should have one entry for the vdev with additional lines for each drive in that vdev, I can agree, provided we have a clear way to show that the drives are a part of that vdev and don't look like additional vdevs. Maybe indenting the child drives? Or a menu entry to show drives?
I have edited the description.
