I've seen no problems at all.  This is cvsup.nz.freebsd.org:

[dan@cvsup:/usr/home/dan] $ sysctl vfs.vmiodirenable
vfs.vmiodirenable: 1

$ uptime
 1:29AM  up 27 days, 14:06, 1 user, load averages: 0.00, 0.02, 0.05

As for how highly stressed this box is:

$ zgrep -c "\+" cvsupd.log*

It's a P120 with 64MB of RAM...  I can't comment on the performance 
boost.  Merely that it's been stable.
