This is not completely true. SSDs will help significantly but they
will still suffer from the synchronized commit of a transaction group.
SSDs don't suffer from seek time, but they still suffer from
erase/write time and many SSDs are capable of only a few thousand
flushed writes per second. It is just a matter of degree.
SSDs which do garbage collection during the write cycle could cause
the whole vdev to temporarily hang until the last SSD has committed
