I don't think it's that simple (already tried - see r282922 and the subsequent backout in r283168)

Let me dig up the patch I have and see what else was changed.

I'd be glad to hear what else needs to be changed - I applied that patch in freenas/os tree about a month ago and heard from several users that it fixed virtio-blk on Windows for them, but maybe they didn't push it hard enough.

It fixes Windows but breaks other guests.

Unclear why phabricator does the remove of reviewers when I try to add group bhyve, restore grehan caused by that in last change.
