I don't remember entire discussions about geom_raid5 but I seem to
recall there was concern about its aggressive caching, possibly in the
write path, which could make recovery in case of e.g. power outage
problematic. I'm possibly mis-remembering this so feel free to ignore if
it's not relevant to your geom_raid5.
