"Traditional" (solarish) zfs lore recommends giving zfs the entire
disk, unpartitioned, since it can make more efficient use of it then.
Zfs will generally be able to re-assemble a volume after renumbering
components - I have seen it do that on OmniOS after swapping an Areca
RAID controller in JBOD mode out for a plain SAS controller.
