unfortunately we've been a bit sloppy in tracking the time output

We're setting up a new round of tests we'll run tomorrow and we'll track

Some suggestions: if you're not already, I'd recommend using ahci-hd
for disk images instead of virtio-blk. The AHCI emulation uses a thread

Also, I'd recommend using a network login to the guest rather than
running something from the console. The UART emulation in bhyve will
result in a lot of VM exits, which can impact performance.
