Following an example in newfs_udf(8) causes a KASSERT kernel panic
in kern_physio. I did not investigate if it leads to problems on
non-DIAGNOSTIC kernels.
dd if=/dev/zero of=bigdisk.2048.udf seek=9999999 count=1
vnconfig -c vnd0 bigdisk.2048.udf 2048/1/1/1
newfs_udf -L bigdisk /dev/rvnd0d

I don't know if the problem can be fixed for 5.0, especially considering
