the believability of FS benchmarks is far worse than other benchmarks
mainly because the domain is so large.  merely answering "what kind of 
IO do you care about" requires a handful of dimensions.  measuring it
means convolving those dimensions with a heaping handful of newer,
orthogonal ones like "what chunksize is your raid", etc.
