Yes I agree. I was just stating that simply for the previous post
implying where ZFS was slower than UFS. I would believe there is some
sort of memory restriction or constraint or some sort of routine that is
preventing them from being loaded nearly as fast as when the kernel is
already fully loaded. This to me seems like a worthwhile problem looking
into if it can be fixed.
