Well, that's why I wrote already in the man page:
+       <para>This <command>fake_io</command> VFS module intercepts file 

+       read/write calls and does nothing for read (no operation, gives 
+       back undefined data) ...

If it causes less security concerns, then OK let me add this. Or at least 
enables measuring the memset penalty.
Will send the next patch soon.
