At the risk of getting farther off-topic..
Virtio-blk can't and won't support fstrim. If/when bhyve were to have
virtio-scsi support that could work with trim, but last I was aware there
wasn't a whole lot of momentum in that direction. The virtual AHCI controller
in bhyve does support trim and performs remarkably well. That's what I use for
my vol-backed VMs and I haven't had any complaints. Worth testing, IMO.
