I've forgot to mention, but GEOM direct dispatch is now active only on 
x86 because GET_STACK_USAGE macro now defined only there and I wanted to 
stay on a safe side. On other archs GEOM works in old queued way. 
Somebody should port that small macro to other archs. But that is still 
interesting data point. Thanks.

Unfortunately I can't reproduce that and have not enough clues. It may 
be specific to some GEOM class. Could you describe/show all GEOM 
topology, file systems, etc. you have there?
gpart show
sysctl kern.geom.confxml

Thank you!
