Are you sure this should be MFC'd? While I agree with the change in
principle, it will cause systems currently using malloc-backed md devices to
mysteriously switch to swap-backed. How will this behave on systems that
don't have swap, such as pure diskless systems not using NFS-backed swap?
This isn't a strong objection per se, but it could be that rc.d scripts need
tweaking for diskless environments if they currently do use malloc-back md
devices based on that being the default.
