            Bug ID: 196243
           Summary: [bhyve] vmrun.sh doesn't recognise zvol diskdev
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.1-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any

          Severity: Affects Some People

         Component: misc

I noticed that there is a minor problem in the vmrun.sh script if you are using
a zvol as the virtio_diskdev. The 'make_and_check_diskdev' check will fail if
virtio_diskdev is a zvol as it only checks for files (vs char devices). This is
harmless as the truncate doesn't actually do anything if the device is a zvol
however the attached small patch fixes the problem and removes the spurious
error message.
