I had really bad performance before removing the line. I had to disable
zil on zfs (my /usr/src is on zfs) to be able to recompile, as one of
the zil process was eating up nearly all off the CPU.
After rebuild/install kernel, no problems anymore. Thanks.
I second the above suggestion about opensolaris. There's no mention
anywhere of this module (or at least, I didn'it find one before), on
UPDATING nor on the list of what this module is for ?
