For me GEOM, and devfs are not clear but huge wins of FreeBSD-(5,6)
over FreeBSD-4. I could not care less if that costs a little
performance when it works so beautifully. Not only encrypting modules
but also GEOM raid management modules work perfectly, as far as i have seen.
They are both simple to use and adequately documented. And having a /dev
which reflects the hardware actually present is a great bonus.
