I am running the branch from a few days ago and it has been completely
stable for me. YMMV, of course.

Don't think so, but there is no disadvantage either - so if you have already
newfs'd before the in-filesystem log support turned up, there is no need
to re-newfs now. If you have no log, just use the in-filesystem log area.

The journal is metadata only, and 64 M is quite a bit of metadata. I think
Solaris uses the same scaling. IIUC this limit is only the autoscaling, you
can assign bigger values via tunefs.
