> Right now, because sync-on-block-close is enabled, HLog causes the disk to stall out
on large writes (esp when we cross block boundary).
> We currently use 256MB blocks. The idea is that if we use smaller block sizes, we should
be able to spray the data across more disks (because of round robin scheduling) and this would
cause more uniform disk usage.
