There is no longer anybody actively working on FreeBSD who intimately knows the details of the memory manager, or the vfs.

jeff (Jeff Roberson) knows VFS and he's the person that work on SMPVFS. SMPVFS is on by default on i386 and amd64.

Even things like rewriting the CPU scheduler has turned out to be an effectively impossible task, with the SCHED_ULE rewrite being unusably buggy since it came about in 2002, despite being mostly a reimplementation of Linux's O(1) scheduler.

ULE is fixed in -CURRENT and RELENG_6 by davidxu, give it a shot. There is report that it works on 4x Xeon 6850 machine great with the fix. If you still have any problem with it, please make your bug report useful.
