It worked; the only problem I am still having is adding swap; both for
a zvol and a gpt partition I get:
nzfs# swapctl -a /dev/zvol/dsk/rpool/SWAP
swapctl: /dev/zvol/dsk/rpool/SWAP: Device not configured
nzfs# swapctl -a /dev/dk5
swapctl: /dev/dk5: Device not configured
Could be something I've screwed during the installation, but can't
figure it out.
