I just thought that I'd throw in that I've been using the latest boot
blocks and a level 2 FFS since around the first of August, and I
haven't had one filesystem related problem (that I know of).  And,
I've done a lot of big builds in that time.  If it matters, I have a
BusLogic bt747s EISA SCSI controller, a Quantum LPS ProDrive 540s, and
a Quantum ProDrive 425s.
