I'm using a Dell M4400 as my poudriere oven to compile all my ports.
This M4400 has a DVD cartridge in a bay which can be ejected and replaced
by another cartridge containing now a new 250 GByte SSD and which shows
up as ada1 in dmesg (ada0 is the old internal hard disk with the

I have all my pordriere ports, jails and data below a top level dir
/usr/local/poudriere , some 34 GByte as shown below. My idea is move
them and also /usr/ports/disfiles to the SSD, perhaps the distfiles as
/usr/local/poudriere/disfiles and a symlink from /usr/ports/distfiles to
this new dir.

My questions is: what would be best form to format ada1 to a files
system for this to get most speed out of it?
