Since 5.3 you should probably use the geom-aware gvinum instead of vinum.

Any hints as to how I make this migration? Is it as simple as putting
geom_vinum_load="YES" in /boot/loader.conf, or is there further configuration
to do? Is gvinum happy with the same configuration data as vinum? Presumably
device names are different so I'll have to change /etc/fstab accordingly?
