> The blocksize should be fixed and large (perhaps 256kB).

I used strace to check md5sum & sha1sum: they use read() syscalls of 32,768 bytes.

stat().st_blksize is 4,096 bytes.

I'm not sure that it matters so much to use large read. But I don't really care, I'm also ok to use something large like 256 kB.

Note: The cp command uses read() syscalls of 131,072 bytes.
