You can split the big partition up into a section that stays mounted
all the time and a section that rarely gets mounted. Amd is pretty
good about mounting things on a demand driven basis.
Another good thing to do is unmount as many partitions as you can from
/etc/rc.shutdown.local. I find that -current goes through spates of
hanging on shutdown and it always seems to hang before unmounting the
$#%^ disks. Doing the unmounts earlier from userland at least
protects the big partitions from having to be fsck-ed.
