Erm, to clarify why both raw files are bigger than 10GB, that's because 
besides the 10GB download I did other downloads etc.

Btw, for those interested, generating 1000000 tiny files on the 
glusterfs volume directly takes around 50 minutes in my setup; 
generating the same 1000000 files in the loop mounted raw file takes ~3 
minutes, including flushing the disk cache and unmounting the file.
