No worries. Thanks for getting support for this in the tree. I look 
forward to not rebooting production VMs after a VMDK resize.

And while on the subject of VMware+SCSI, it would be great if someone 
could get the VMware PVSCSI driver into the tree for the 11.0 release. 
It's sitting in phabricator in review and I'm sure it would be useful to 
a bunch of FreeBSD users ...
