 Is there any progress to integrate this patch in to base system (6.x or 
 7.x)?
 
 It seems useful to me. I was thinking to integrate similar feature in to 
 my own backup scripts, but start googling first and find this periodic 
 script.
 
 I think there is nothing bad on backuping disk layout on filesystem 
 itself, because filesystem is (could be) easily backed up by tar, rsync, 
 dump or any other backup system, so one then have disk layout (fdisk + 
 bsdlabel) stored in the backup archive with data.
 
 The last note - I can not find updated version of 220.backup-bsdlabels 
 with daily_backup_bsdlabels_xtra_disks announced variable (I am using 
 gmirror on almost all my servers)
