Exactly from "man disklabel":
Due to the use of an u_int32_t to store the number of sectors, BSD labels
are restricted to a maximum of 2^32-1 sectors. This usually means 2TB of
disk space. Larger disks should be partitioned using another method such
as gpt(8). The various BSDs all use slightly different versions of BSD
labels and are not generally compatible.
(I havn't use it, so ask someone other...)
