This is already effectively double buffered, because of the way you used
"progress".  You could try using a larger blocksize for the reads from
/dev/zero (1m perhaps) and also for the writes to rdk15 - the kernel
will buffer up and dispatch the MAXPHYS sized I/Os.

To get 200MB out of that drive you likely need larger writes, which we
currently can't do.  It might perform slightly better through the
filesystem, though.
