Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Add USES=compiler:c11 to 2 next xfce4 ports.

Unbreak bwn-firmware-kmod on powerpc64, there are PCI controllers on powerpc64
boards.

net/bw{i,n}-firmware-kmod: Allow build on powerpc

They are required for bwi(4) or bwn(4) to actually work.  The Airport
Extreme cards in {i,Power}Books are PCI devices.

Mark as not-for !x86.

These ports fail to build on at least powerpc64; plus, these aging PCI
and/or CardBus cards are unlikely to be of use on other tier-2 archs.

[bwn] add missing initvals for rev11 LP PHY.

We needed both the initvals and the band-switch initvals for rev11.
This was required for one of my BCM LP NICs.

[bwn] Initial support for the v5 firmware

This is just to support the initial v5 firmware for one of the PHY-N
NICs I'm going to do some development.

It only pulls out the specific v5 mimo firmware for the BCM4312 NIC
I am playing with; I'm adding it so we at least have the framework
to pull things out of the v5 firmware.

The existing NICs still use v4 firmware and I don't plan on changing
that for some time as bwn(4) doesn't yet support the newer firmware API
and descriptor layouts.

Convert to USES=kmod, which removes duplicated code and ensures that all
required steps are followed.

There are no user-visible changes.  The exception is multimedia/ptx-kmod,
which now installs the kernel module into /boot/modules instead of
${PREFIX}/libexec/${PORTNAME}, this was something USES=kmod cannot handle.
