Description

The current zpool should have a way to override sector size in case of "advanced format" drives with internal 4k sector, and reporting 512B sector size to the OS. Since most large drives lie about their sector size like this, we need a way to override it with zpool upon creation. A patch was submitted some time back, but for some reasons, it was rejected. Discussions about this exist at http://wiki.openindiana.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4883847
