I am going through an initial install using the automatic guided root
on zfs procedure.  I have selected the 2 redundant disks raid option. 
I am at the point where I assign the disks to the zpool.  I have 8
disks listed. These have the dev ids: ada0-ada3 and da0-da3.  The
descriptions of the four adaX devs all begin with 'WDC WD30EFRX-...' .
The descriptions of the four daX devs all begin with 'ATA WDC

What is the significance of this, if any?
