[OpenIndiana-discuss] 4k zpool version no longer available?

Dear all,

After studying all the information about 4K-disks I figured out that to get more space in my server I need to create a new pool, consisting of 4K-disks and then moving everything from the old 512-byte pool to the new one. 
So far, so good. Everything is connected and detected correctly.  The 3TB Seagate drives that I bought unfortunately lie about their physical sector size, so I wanted to try the modified zpool as suggested in the wiki-page http://wiki.openindiana.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4883847 . 

It seems that the zpool-command that is linked to on that page is no longer available. Is it available somewhere else or should I make the zpool-modifications myself and build my own zpool? 

As this is a headless sever I would prefer a solution that does not involve booting from zfsguru/freenas/whatever just to create the pool and then boot back into openindiana as it would involve either getting the server to a monitor, or a monitor to the server. Both of which are inconvenient (not impossible, just inconvenient, so if that's the easiest solution, then that's what I'll do…)

I'm  currently running 151_a5 in case it matters.

Best regards,
