Soeren Kristenson has lovely IPSec accelerators which are great

Gee, and yet some hardcore people have recognized that FFS was aged
and needed changing. Thus became softupdates and FFS2 and snapshots.
The joy I had this AM when an fbsd 5.1 host that powered down suddenly
came up and said "/var needs fsck, defering it for later."
