Replacing mirrored swap

I'm using a ZFS mirror, and had a disc fail. I had a spare unused disc
in the case, and just switched over to that, after partitioning it
with gpart. ZFS is great, just have to say that.

But I'm not sure about the correct way to bring the new swap partition
online. Do I use gmirror label, as I did when I created it? Or gmirror
insert?  Or something else. I'm using the round-robin balancing
algorithm, if that matters.

Thanks in advance for your help.
