I have about ten installations of pfSense 2 in CentOS/KVM as FreeBSD 8.x profile and experience no problems except significant CPU load at 50-100 Mbps stream shaping/routing/filtering (about 50-60% of one Penitum G630 core at 75 MBps), but this is because of e1000 nics emulation (freebsd 8.x in pfsense 2 has no virtio drivers included as I can remember).
