Thanks for your answer. I was wondering what the current
state of opinion was for using soft-updates on top of a
geli provider. From what I've read, disk write caching
reduces the effectiveness of soft-updates. I was curious
if geli with authentication would obsolete soft-updates
or not. I may be mis-understanding soft-updates.

Does that mean you are/aren't or have/haven't run
ZFS on top of, say, 3 geli encrypted disks? I'm curious
as to whether there are many people who have tried it,
and use it.
