Dang, and I *JUST* reinstalled babylon4 with u8 after it went down and
hosed its boot archive and bootloader.

Well, guess I get to LiveUpgrade it.  :)  It'll be worth it for the new
ZFS features alone.  Of course, I'll have to wipe my main storage pool
to recreate it as RAIDZ3 ... but then, I was considering wiping and
recreating it anyway, to reallocate two of the current four hot spares
to data space.  (I wouldn't normally run four disks out of twelve as hot
spares, except the pool in its current form was configured after a
multiple-disk cascade failure, and there were only nine working disks at
the time.)
