You ought first establish there is a problem.  What you have cited is
recently reinvigorated trend that has taken on the air of  the "BDS is
dying" troll.  What you have is a set of computer users with no
understanding of kernel internals attempting to diagnose some sort of
possibly legitimate problem by reaching conclusion via rumor and
guesswork.  These people can be taken about as seriously as those who
insist the moon landing was fake and other bizarre ignorant pseudo-science.

When you have a test case illustrating your feared FreeBSD VM shortcomings,
you may at that point begin to attract developer interest.
