I was thinking about this mirroring issue and now I'm not sure any
longer what is the proper way to do it...on Linux, using lvm2+raid1
array means to really get identical copy of the whole disk, which
would be according to using GEOM for mirroring.

Otoh, if one uses ZFS mirror feature, then this won't provide mirror
for the /boot (UFS) & swap partitions.

What would be correct way to do it and how can one do it manually (so
that I install PCBSD earlier)?
