    Jeff's SUJ work is for UFS I believe, and is heavily integrated into

    We basically do not use UFS any more except for /boot or on very small
    drives.  HAMMER is used for anything bigger than 50G or so.
    I stopped bringing in UFS stuff several years ago (prior to the UFS
    snapshots and background fsck) and I really don't want to bring in
    those pieces.  What we have now is nice and stable and I don't want
    to mess with it.

SUJ has brought some fixes to softupdates, besides ...
Sometimes there are advantages in having more than one filesystem ;-).
