I'm not yet setup to move disks between FreeBSD and Solaris, but my
first goal was to integrate it with FreeBSD's GEOM framework.

We support cache flushing operations on any GEOM provider (disk,
partition, slice, anything disk-like), so bascially currently I treat
everything as a whole disk (because I simply can), but don't do any
EFI/GPT labeling. I'll try to move data from Solaris' disk to FreeBSD
and see what happen.
