Sorry for the double post, but the only problem that I've encountered
is after creating a encrypted provider with geli(8), that provider
cannot be partitioned using the GPT scheme. You can still partition
it using gpart(8), but the scheme must be BSD or MBR.
I am not sure whether this is a bug or just the way GPT partitions
work, but it is not that big of a problem unless you want to have very
large encrypted providers that are GPT scheme partitions.
