It basically works for me.  Of course, vinum still has a dozen
of bugs that get uncovered once you leave the path Greg has
been testing :) (like you make a typo in your configuration...),
but that's another matter.

Anyway, since i just fell again across it: the vinum devfs volume
entries get assigned to root:wheel mode 0600.  This makes it
impossible for a member of group `operator' to dump(8) them although
operators can dump any other disk device.  We should make it
consistent (either way).

Also, i have been surprised that the /dev/vinum/plex nodes of a
mirrored volume don't show identical contents (and the second one even
seems to have the wrong device size), but that's certainly not a
problem of the DEVFS integration again, but a genuine vinum bug.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
