In FreeBSD 5.x and FreeBSD 6.x, the INVARIANTS option has been significantly 
expanded to test a much larger set of invariants, and also incorporate kernel 
use-after-free checking, which involves memory scrubbing.  This is great for 
catching bugs, but it will have a significant performance impact, especially 
for kernel-intensive loads.
