In a 10-second google, I see that gmirror is a FreeBSD raid tool, perhaps
similar in some ways to linux lvm.  One similarity it has - It doesn't

You should be using zpool mirroring.  Then ZFS will be aware of the
redundant copy, and then ZFS has the potential to correct corruption it
finds.  If you're doing the redundancy at a level below ZFS, then ZFS can
only see one device.  It cannot perform as well this way, and it cannot
perform such features as redundant copy error correction.
