Right now, I have upgraded my -current machine from
February 13 to April 26. 

I were pleased with change to dir allocation in FFS,
but here are my unpleasant test results (UDMA33, partition
is 3 GB where 1 GB is free, soft-updates are enabled):

Old system                              New system

time tar xvfz ports.tar.gz

        real    8m13.773s               real    13m48.368s
        user    0m3.240s                user    0m3.167s
        sys     0m9.371s                sys     0m11.329s

time rm -r ports

        real    4m53.255s               real    2m20.904s
        user    0m0.336s                user    0m0.295s
        sys     0m2.565s                sys     0m3.230s

rm -r is much faster, but tar xvfz is much slower. Furthermore,
it was possible to work on another console in an old system
without any big impact when tar xvfz was run, but on new
system, I have to wait very long time for any disk operation (when
tar xvfz runs). For example, I have to wait from 2 to 30 seconds
on ls -l command.
