Description

I had scenario where disk was partitioned by gpart tool in freebsd and accessed by illumos. The result was quite unexpected - the primary label got destroyed and format was unable to fix it as there is no "reserved" partition. Fortunately this same issue probably did preserve backup label from being destroyed.

Definitely needs more investigation.
