I tried 15t+fas and almost current and there are no difference here,
so it seems that fas changes are the cause. I also noticed significant
difference between read and write performances,
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rsd0h bs=64k count=8000
gave me 135 secs, while
dd if=/dev/rsd0h of=/dev/null bs=64k count=8000
	69 secs.
