Maybe there is a problem in newfs(8).

    sbin/newfs           mkfs.c
  Implement simple write combining for newfs - this is particularly useful
  for large scsi disks with WCE = 0.  This yields around a 7 times speedup
  on elapsed newfs time on test disks here.  64k clusters seems to be the
  sweet spot for scsi disks using our present drivers.

  Revision  Changes    Path
  1.30      +38 -1     src/sbin/newfs/mkfs.c

When I backout this change, the problem seems disappeared...
