A lot of work has gone into master lately and it is all working out
very nicely *EXCEPT* some of the UFS work. Right now UFS fails fsx
I have a fix but it will not be committed until mid next week because
it is too sensitive to push without significant testing, as I don't
want to risk corrupting UFS on-media. The current issues are
run-time issues related to VM/BUF coherency and will not corrupt UFS
People running HAMMER don't have to worry about any of this, a root
HAMMER and boot UFS setup is not affected. People running UFS might
see occassional issues.
This is on master only. The release is not affected.
