This makes its output very compressible (I measured 250:1 by LZOing the resulting file). This
makes the results of TestDFSIO very hard to compare when running on HDFS vs other file systems
which may include some compression on the network, disk, or both -- what is ostensibly a benchmark
of IO throughput yields completely skewed results towards the system with compression.
