I am personally running 4 of my machines with the latest changes (1.2GHz 256MB, 333MHz 160MB, P200MMX 32MB, PIII600 190MB Laptop) and things are working great. I didn't stress test it thoroughly myself, but here are some numbers: it took 19.26 seconds to untar the OpenBSD 2.8 srcsys.tar.gz file (7200 RPM UDMA100 IDE drive) and only 2.76 seconds to rm -rf it, on my 1.2GHz system. (Sorry, I do not have older numbers to compare to, see the above URL for comparison tests.) Another important change is that it is no longer necessary to run tunefs in single user mode to activate soft updates. All that is needed is to add the "softdep" mount option to the partitions you want soft updates enabled on in /etc/fstab."
