 Looks like Samsung 850 EVO doesn't like TRIMs sent by ZFS (and I've thought
it is good SSD, consumer-grade, but really good one!).

 I've tuned down TRIMs with


And it MOSTLY solved problem: there are some freezing from time to time (and
strange consumption of CPU by low-profile threads) with these settings.

 When I've disabled TRIM completely all freezes are gone, and low-profile
threads consume tenths of percent of CPU, as it is intended.
