heehee, that was really great!
That did the trick!
it reported with getcache:

# dkctl wd1 getcache
/dev/rwd1d: read cache enabled
/dev/rwd1d: write-back cache enabled
/dev/rwd1d: read cache enable is not changeable
/dev/rwd1d: write cache enable is changeable
/dev/rwd1d: cache parameters are not savable

but, I set the write cache to enable, and rebooted, and it stuck, so
should be good to go!
Thank you so much!
