As Thomas mentioned, there is/was a bug with certain CPUs, but this was due
to the strict checking of CPU features that OpenBSD introduced (  Peter explained
the switch to get around that issue (-w).

The only other thing is Jumbo frame support, but that is really down to
limits in VirtIO and not really a show stopper and doesn't affect anything
in production for us.

Enjoy bhyve, it has been a drop in replacement for our individual ESXi
instances and has been bulletproof, which is good as we have hypervisor
hosts over 6 hour drives away! (Oh the uplift from 11.0 to 11.1 was done
remotely without nuking the host).
