The performace degregration of FFS WAPBL journaling is quite noticiable

That might be true. I only tested it on a Xeon 3040 system.

 Journaling is a sort of "high availablity" feature in
return of cost, for CPU and disk IO handwidth.

WAPBL actually saves IO bandwidth, see below.

I would pick FFS softdep rather than log which should be carefully
intended for application domain where it does matter.

And that would probably be the wrong choice. I've benchmarked soft
dependences and WAPL on the same hardware. The result is that WAPBL
is faster. You can find my results here:
