If I have understood ada correct, the "first" disk (lowest current
number) is ada0, the next ada1, and so on. If you have ad0 and ad4,
they will be ad0=ada0, and ad4=ada1 . It doesn't affect anything
_except_ the disk names, so ad4s1f = ada1s1f and so on. You'll have to
change most of your fstab, basically s/ad0/ada0/g and s/ad4/ada1/g .

That said, my one ad to ada transition was on a ZFS-only system, which
took the fstab editing out of it. I might be horribly wrong in some or
all of the above.
