It's kind of annoying that as drives get bigger and bigger, the size the
manufacturer reports gets further and further from the size the
operating system reports i.e. every order of magnitude takes it further
apart -- 1000GB drives are becoming common now, but the OS reports a 1TB
drive as 0.91TB; a discrepancy of 10%!
