Is this something known, or should I file a PR? Obviously writing a

The need to use the raw device for dd block operations is known (at least it is to me. Although last time I screwed up and forgot I don't recall it making the system run slow for other IO ops. However I'm not sure I particularly tried any as I was waiting for the operation to complete (and wondering why it was taking so long ;) ).
