I am not MFCing it because it is not my change.  Here are the list of TODO
items from the "show stopper" and "required features" sections that I do not
believe will be done:
* PREEMPTION-related hangs involving threads
* boot time panic
* Reports of UFS2 "large disk" problems

"desired features":
* everything

"Things not on the lists that I would love to be fixed":
* IPv6 route lookup recursion I've fixed already/still getting review
* ugen detachment crash I've fixed already/still getting review
* BPF panics due to bpfdetach() on live interface
* cbb child interrupt handler deregistration race+panic
* SoftUpdates panics
* anything from

Feel free to prove me wrong about any of these.  I only have so much time to
do anything myself, so don't expect me to just drop everything and work full
time night and day without pay to fix everything that no one has any interest
in fixing.  I can only fix so much "everything that no one has any interest
in fixing."

P.S.: Shout outs to phk, rwatson, julian, jhb, csjp, and anyone I may have
      forgotten, who is spending an inordinate amount of time on FreeBSD's

P.P.S.: I'm happy to be proven wrong about any of these things.  I'm going
        exclusively by what work I've actually seen happening, or at least
        reports of enough progress being made.
