As of now, we'll need a separate disk partition for the Storage Manager,
because we are assuming that a fixed allocation is available to us. Any
tests we wish to perform are based on assuming that a certain amount of
cache is available.
What is the largest partition that can be allocated to GC experiments?
For the future, we are considering the effect of sharing the cache with
ad-hoc objectivity reads (derefs).
