Permanent restrictions:
- It is not possible to format a SoftRAID disk with MSDOS FAT16/32.
- It is not possible to encrypt a disk partition, only complete disks are supported.
- It is not possible to get seperate CPU stats per processor on SMP machines because
FreeBSD does not support that feature.
- Enable 'polling' on interfaces used by a LAGG interface will make it inoperable.
- It is not possible to mount EXT2 disks with an inode size of 256 bytes. You
have to format it with 128 bytes on Linux to use them on FreeBSD.

Known bugs:

overriden by the IPv4 DNS server.
