Seems I spoke too soon. Looks like I found a different kind of bug related to
this. I've applied the patch listed above. My rpool looks like this:
rpool 1.27T 2.95T 176K none
rpool/ROOT 145G 2.95T 50.1G /
rpool/mysql 53.0G 2.95T 23.0G /var/lib/mysql
rpool/mysql-log 5.79G 2.95T 1.44G /var/lib/mysql-log
rpool/plexmediaserver 206G 2.95T 171G /var/lib/plexmediaserver
rpool/spool 115G 2.95T 35.5G /var/spool
rpool/virtual_machines 778G 2.95T 743G /var/lib/libvirt

I can see inside snapshots for rpool/ROOT:
windwalker:~# ls /.zfs/snapshot/zfs-auto-snap_daily-2019-12-07-1107/
bin boot.tar.xz dead.letter etc lib lost+found mnt opt proc run share sys tmp var
boot cdrom dev home lib64 media netshares path root sbin srv tftpboot usr

Looking inside snapshots for any other dataset in rpool results in "Too many
levels of symbolic links" error:
ls /var/lib/libvirt/.zfs/snapshot/zfs-auto-snap_daily-2019-12-07-1107/
ls: cannot access
'/var/lib/libvirt/.zfs/snapshot/zfs-auto-snap_daily-2019-12-07-1107/': Too
many levels of symbolic links

I've updated the ZFS issues ticket.
