More generally, block_size % 12 is >= 4 for all powers of 2 greater
than 12 bytes. I'd probably remove (1k, 2k, 4k) because that might
scare people who might say, "hey! I'm using a 16k block size on my
HPC system running on a Power or Itanium box --- am I going to be OK?".
Valid block sizes go up to the page size of the hardware in question...
