BSD and Darwin derivatives DragonFly 1.8.0 has been released. The biggest kernel change in this release is the addition of virtual kernel support and a virtual kernel build target. The biggest user-visible changes include updates to third party applications included in the base system, a major rewrite of NULLFS which removes all directory recursion restrictions from mount_null and removes nearly all the kernel resource overhead when using such mounts, and a multi-ip feature for jails.

It was mentioned on a FreeBSD quartly report a while back in regards to KSE and slow performance on non-x86 architectures.

One has to ask how much is due to KSE tuning beant towards a particular architecture, or are the architecturers were there is bad performance, just plain well crap architecture.
