Never mind. Don't know why it didn't work from first boot or why it
wouldn't start manually after, but its working now.
Added "geom_vinum_load=YES" to /boot/loader.conf. Rebooted. And now
things work as they did before. The difference is that gvinum now
sees the drives more completely. Previously listed "0 drives:" but
got the volume, plex and subdisks correct.
