Just another data point: running 9.1-RC1 as well as 9.1-RC2 since they
have become available on my primary workstation/build server (for
pkgng pkg's), in addition to my mail/web/shell servers.  I have
managed all my updates via freebsd-update, so no custom bits compiled
for the kernel or userland.  have had no lockups, and performance is
great on my workstation/build server.  On all systems I've been using
a combination of ufs and zfs w/o issues as well.

Hope this helps.
