System: NetBSD 5.0_STABLE 20091215
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	raidctl seems to have a problem with the status output while constructing
	a raidset which is bigger then 2^31 sectors.

	This maybe a 'defect' in the passing structure from the kernel to
	Initialise a 1.4 TB raidset with:
		raidctl -iv raid0

	Wait 5.5 hours to reach the 99% mark and then notice that the
	timer stops but the task is still running.

	Stop the running command and start a
		raidctl -S raid0
	which now displays that it will take another 2 hours to finish
	that task.
