Your patch worked fine, the driver compiled seamlessly, but I am unable
to see more than 2T on my coraid device, even though it's size is 13T. I
don't know whether this is a driver issue or fbsd issue.
uname -a on my machine:
[root@~]# uname -a
FreeBSD lala 8.1-STABLE FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE #0: Tue Aug 31 13:54:36 EEST
2010 root at lala:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/CUSTOM i386
Thanx again for your help, and since the driver seems to be working, you
should maybe inform coraid regarding their driver on fbsd8.
