Block transfer sizes over about 64kB are totally irrelevant for 99% of all
people.

Don't even bother testing anything more. Yes, bigger transfers happen, but
a lot of common loads have *smaller* transfers than 64kB.

So benchmarks that try to find "theoretical throughput" by just making big
transfers should just be banned. They give numbers, yes, but the numbers
are pointless.
