Is the BHyVe guest as suitable for high-performance disk IO as the host?

For an environment with very heavy parallell IO, should the performance
be just as good in a BHyVe guest as in the FreeBSD host environment?
What I thought of is that I guess within the host environment, the
storage subsystem should have all kinds of optimizations like an
internal work queue that pushes lots of work alinearly/asynchronously to
the disk controller and this way allows it, in turn, to give all its
Does the virtualized disk interface carry over all that goodness to the
(https://wiki.freebsd.org/bhyve seems to say yes, presuming you
configure BHyVe to run the virtual disk in AHCI mode?)
