Since I updated to the Feb 25 -CURRENT I'm currently running (from
mid-Sept, I believe), I see similar.  It seems like the ARC has gotten
really unwilling to yield, so it grows up in size, and then doesn't
let up under pressure.  I saw programs being actively used constantly
swapping their working set in and out, since they were left with tiny
available memory.

Hard-slappping vfs.zfs.arc_max down a ways mitigated it enough to get
me through the days, but is a pretty gross hackaround...
