Do you have a quick guide how to do this?
I'm a little bit puzzled how the FS layout would look like. Just from
thinking about it I would do the following, but I like to know if this
is the right way:
- ad0s1a -> contains a / with contains only the boot directory
- some zpool which contains / with everything except the boot
In one scenario I would just hope that ZFS DTRT magically, but this
would imply that ZFS does some kind of union/overlay/underlay mount.
So I lean more towards a ad0s1a mounted by hand to somewhere else in
the ZFS namespace and a symlink from the zfs /boot directory to the
real location where the UFS is mounted.
In both scenarios I'm not sure how the fstab would look like.
