The card is a 9500-12 despite the driver saying otherwise. The array is
built at 2.7T through the 3ware bios. bsdlabel just refuses to accept a
label larger than 700-something gig.

Pre-9500 controllers have a hardware limit of 2TB per RAID volume.
that's your issue.

And, before you decide to break it into 2 RAID volumes, be aware the
optimized and blazing fast performance is *only* on the first volume.
Additional volumes are very slow. Its something 3ware doesn't advertise
will usually admit to if confronted.
