No, with the sysctl set to 0 it works really well.  I've been running
it that way for several days and have transferred large amounts of
data to an external USB3 disk with no problems.

I didn't mention it, but I also tested the reset kernel (with INVARIANTS)
with the sysctl set to 0 and the kernel did not panic.

I've had ada_enable_uma_ccbs set to 1 the whole time and never saw any
problems.

I agree, as long as the default is 0 all the code can stay in the tree.
