Sorry, I was a bit too vague. It doesn't have a file or stdin interface,
as far as I know.

btrfs-corrupt-block has your typical "kitchen sink of flags" interface and
doesn't currently read input from streams/files. I extended that
interface in the simplest way to support arbitrary corruption, which
didn't fit with the stream based corruption this test does.

my options seem to be:
shoehorn the "byte, length" interface into this test or
shoehorn the "stream corruption input in" interface into

I have no problem with either, the former was just less work because I
already wrote it that way. If the junk I did here is a deal-breaker, I
don't mind modifying btrfs-corrupt-block.
