The recently discovered kern/128529 had me briefly worried, as we're
planning to leverage gjournal pretty heavily with a RELENG_7 -based
custom build.   I've manually applied the fix (at present only in
-CURRENT) to the 7.x sources can report that it appears to work well.

I wanted to report that fact (as a vote for MFC) and also ask:   with
this fix in place does anyone have any lingering misgivings about use of
gjournal for root filesystem?

Our thanks to all responsible on kern/128529 and geom_journal in general.
