What is st_blksize here?  Is it directly comparable (if such a thing is
possible) to st_blksize in struct stat?  Or does st_preferred_io_size map to
the current st_blksize and your st_blksize map to actual media block size (and
if so, is that the same as st_alloc_blksize?  - I presume st_alloc_blksize
must be a multiple of the media block size).
