That way you get to use files, but ATS treats them as raw devices.

That could also be useful as a way to identify where Adam’s slowdown is coming from: if
the loopback mounted device does not have the performance issues, then we know it’s entirely
ATS’s fault. If it’s the same performance issues as being on the FS directly, it’s due
to the kernel / virtualization. 

I’m hoping the loopback test would yield the same results as using a DB file on the filesystem
directly :).
