Advisory: :-))
Just try it. Dont believe me without thorough testing... :-)
E. g. with (a) mdconfig -a -u 0 -f testdevfile ; glabel label -v fook md0 ;
mdconfig -d -u 0 ; mdconfig -a -u 69 -f testdevfile ; ls /dev/label

I think that is one advantage of glabel: It does not care for the device name,
but it just tastes the last sector of each device, as soon as it shows up (e.
g. after the reboot).
