Description Alan Somers freebsd_committer 2018-01-07 03:01:09 UTC
A geli device's physical path should be the underlying provider's with "/eli" appended, if the underlying provider has a non-null physical path itself.

  geli: append "/eli" to the underlying provider's physical path

  If the underlying provider's physical path is null, then the geli device's
  physical path will be, too. Otherwise, it will append "/eli".  This will make
  geli work better with zfsd(8).
