I was going to ask if that was theoretical max speed for the bus or physical
write speed, but it appears that this is not (yet?) the case:


                if (jsize == -1) {
                         * No journal size specified. 1GB should be safe
                         * default.
                        jsize = 1073741824ULL;
                msize = g_get_mediasize(data);
                ssize = g_get_sectorsize(data);
                if (jsize + ssize >= msize) {
                        gctl_error(req, "Provider too small for journalling. "
                            "You can try smaller jsize (default is %jd).",
