I've started working on manual pages for the zfs boot chain.

Please [p]review my work in progress here:

Many thanks to Warren Block for the initial review and many fixes.

One fix for the gptzfsboot man page would be to mention that
gptzfsboot is installed into a GPT partition of type freebsd-boot, and
that the -i 1 refers to the GPT index for this partition.

We are missing that from the gptboot.8 page also.

  gptzfsboot is installed in a freebsd-boot partition, usually the
  first partition on the disk.  A ``protective MBR'' (see gpart(8)) is
  typically used in combination with gptzfsboot.

  To install gptzfsboot on the ada0 drive:

        gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptzfsboot -i 1 ada0
