It appears the barclamp to deploy Swift fails with 3TB or larger disks. 
Looking deeper at the output of chef-client, I get:

[Tue, 24 Jul 2012 14:32:31 -0500] INFO: Processing execute[creating 
partition 0] action run 
(/var/cache/chef/cookbooks/swift/providers/disk.rb line 239)
Error: partition length of 5860509696 sectors exceeds the 
bsd-partition-table-imposed maximum of 4294967295

I have had success deploying to smaller disks. Has anyone else run into 
this issue?
