left it running iozone -a on the block device for the whole evening.
iozone does lots of reads and writes of different sizes ("record sizes
of 4k to 16M for file sizes of 64k to 512M" from the man). observed
transfer rates in iostat smaller and larger than with previous tests.
no errors detected. 8(

however, I don't think iozone will seek further than 512M. previously
the errors appeared with higher LBAs. not sure if the failure depends
on offset, time, temperature, whatever.

will leave running iozone -A overnight.

to be honest, I was expecting it to fail much sooner. I am quite
puzzled why the fact of using a filesystem makes it fail.
