Looks like the whole disk (more or less) is available to the array, if 
the results of dd are anything to go by:

# time dd if=/dev/dsk/c2t5d4s2 of=/dev/null bs=10000k

14259+1 records in
14259+1 records out

real  2:32:15.0
user        0.5
sys     44:21.6

So it would appear that, given sufficient funds and sufficient cooling, 
I could populate my SSA with 146G drives and have over 4TB of storage in 
it. More likely I will just start collecting whatever 4, 9 and 18G 
drives I can find and see what I can put together.
