Great work, Pawel!  This is an important milestone for the
FreeBSD project.

Just a quick question:  Does ZFS still work reliable when
the write cache for ATA disks is enabled, i.e. with the
line "hw.ata.wc=1" in /boot/loader.conf?

I can't wait to set up a test machine with FreeBSD -current
to start playing with ZFS.  :)
