Yes.  Ideally, ZFS would use FreeBSD's atomic operations instead of
its own.  I believe that the reason it doesn't is (at least in part)
that we don't have 64-bit atomic operations for i386.  I have
unfinished patches for cleaning up the atomic operations on all
platforms; I'll dust them off and see what I can do.
