I think it actually assumes that blocksize <= PAGE_CACHE_SIZE in that
it doesn't contain a loop to iterate over all blocks. It wouldn't be
hard to fix but I'll just put in a comment noting what needs to be fixed
... I don't think there's going to be a lot of enthusiasm for adding
support for blocksize != PAGE_SIZE / PAGE_CACHE_SIZE.
