Excellent! And gdisk has an is being improved to handle the existing
partition tables. Hopefully parted will be too.

On a disk used in a zpool, Solaris creates a 16K partition #9 at the end
of the disk with a GUID of 6A945A3B-1DD2-11B2-99A6-080020736631. What is
that partition for? I don't think I've seen it ever contain any data.

I've seen some people refer to it as an EFI system partition, but that
should have a GUID of C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B, right?
