If it's not aligned, there can be a pretty significant performance 
drop.  Please show the output of 'gpart show' on that drive if it's GPT 
(gpart show ada0) or drive and slice if it's MBR/bsdlabel (gpart show 
ada0 && gpart show ada0s1).

I think that no value there means it cannot be enabled or disabled; it's 
always on.
