The concat device should just appear automatically after the upgrade as long 
as you (continue to) load the geom_concat kernel module. Be aware that if 
the on-disk metadata format has changed then it will automatically be 
upgraded. This is usually a good thing but if you need to roll back to 6.x 
for some reason it's something to take into consideration.

Just curious, is there a reason you're going this route instead of upgrading 
from source?
