Hi, so you're saying that with ucb_direct read/write on mounted file
system should also speed things up compared to NetBSD-8? I see terrible
I/O performance with NetBSD running as a VM on a VirtualBox, just
reading/writing regular files is quite slow compared to Linux VMs on
the same hardware. I've never been able to figure out the reasons for
it, maybe Linux has better integration with VirtualBox and better
optimisations.
