--- Comment #21 from Dag-Erling Smørgrav <des at FreeBSD.org> ---
I don't want the 4k alignment to be a system policy, I want it to be an
installer policy.  And as I've mentioned repeatedly, we get the stripe size
wrong most of the time.  The only cases I know of in which we get it right are
a) directly connected AF SATA drives for which we have a quirk entry and b)
when using our own software RAID drivers.  None of the HW RAID controllers I've
encountered report a stripe size, and since they hide the identities of the
drives, we can't even apply quirks to individual drives.  Hypervisors (I've
tried VirtualBox, KVM and VMWare) don't report a stripe size either, even for
paravirtualized storage.
