oh ... and ... the console spit out:

swap_pager: indefinite wait buffer: bufobj: 0, blkno: 4522, size: 8192

(swap is on a separate zVol).

Ok - you may have hit a separate issue. Is ZFS ARC limited on your setup ? If bhyve and ZFS (and other consumers) end up fighting for memory, everyone loses :( A general rule of thumb is to limit ARC to less than the bhyve VM usage + a few additional gig for the base system.

The FreeBSD default of giving ZFS all memory minus 1GB doesn't work too well when running VMs.
