I wonder if the same is true for LVM? Since it's relatively new, perhaps
some of these issues were worked out in a more "modern" way that would
properly take advantage of the NetBSD-7 kernel.
Personally, as a long-time sysadmin, having LVM fully implemented is a
huge plus (especially when it fully integrates RAID features without
another abstraction layer to deal with). I know that RAIDFrame is capable
and I've used it myself, but I see LVM as being one of the (very) few
design-by-committee projects that ever amounted to squat. Perhaps they
should have involved ISO or IEEE to properly ruin it. Nonetheless,
irrespective of my warm fuzzy coming from familiarity or actual design
wisdom, LVM makes a lot of sense to me, if for no other reason than I get
to shorten the mental-linked-list of block storage management tools like
RAIDFrame, GEOM, VxVM, XVM, LVM, SVM, ZFS, BTRFS, AdvFS, LSM, etc....
