:Do you mean that softupdates is entirely incompatible with Vinum, or

    Wait a sec... softupdates does not depend on write ordering.  Softupdates
    issues all non-conflicting writes in parallel and doesn't care what order
    they are written to the disk.  When those complete, softupdates will then
    followup with all the writes that depend on the original set.
