12TB GEOM stripe, newfs,
then fsck: cannot alloc 768053748 bytes for blockmap

this is not an important issue, but I'd like to ask anyway,
just in case the solution was obvious:
I've bundled three 4TB RAID boxes using GEOM::stripe into a
single 12TB volume. I didn't partition it, I just created UFS
on it using newfs (a "dangerously dedicated" volume).
This is not a production setup, I'm just testing the hardware.
I thought "fsck" would be a plausible benchmarking tool.
-bash-2.05b# fsck_ufs /dev/stripe/data
cannot alloc 768053748 bytes for blockmap
***** FILE SYSTEM MARKED DIRTY *****
After a forced mount, the 12TB volume works fine. It just
can't be fsck'ed.
The machine is a dual Xeon/Nocona + i7520, with 2 GB of RAM,
running FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE with an SMP kernel.
Any ideas are welcome :-)
