Hm. I guess there is a very inefficient RMW cycle if you actually just
write 512 bytes, but, aside from that, it is OK.
That would happen only if the user of the cgd (e.g., a file system)
actually did I/O in 512-byte blocks, wouldn't it? Surely it shouldn't
make a difference whether cgd is interposed between the physical disk
and the file system, no?
