It's been working just fine for me for over a year now. Stay away from 5.0 
for the moment, it's still "semi-production", but the vinum in 4.x will do 

If your system will have many local users, it might be prodent not to 
compile in VFS_AIO when building your kernel. Not compiling it is the 
default, but it does help with performance. It is however, not safe where a 
system has untrusted local users.
