Also I get poor IO performance with usb hard drive and slow disk access (presumably as a result of lots of kernel time spent on driver issues.

I don't know if this is just an IRQ issue or a driver bug. I will soon have this machine with illumos-gate installed on it so if I can be of assistance to track down bugs then I'd be happy to do it.
