For me it was worth the effort as 7.1 has the driver for the network
interface found on my motherboard (Atheros L1E) and has an updated est
(SpeedStep) driver that support my CPU (45nm Pentium Dual Core E5200).
The update using freebsd-update was quick and went smoothly. Also, the
new scheduler is now enabled but I can't tell yet if it performs
better on an SMP system.
