Both of them.

Reading two 100M files in interleaved way with 16K buffer, 62MB/s

Reading two 700M files in interleaved way with 16K buffer, 9MB/s

Reading two 100M files in interleaved way with 1M buffer, 55MB/s
  get worse with large buffer somehow

Reading two 700M files in interleaved way with 1M buffer, 34MB/s
  get better with large buffer, but still difference, 55 vs 34

I cannot find the reason for this. gstat(8) also shows low rates when
reading large files in interleaved way but not for small files.
