comment Reduce bad block retry / wait times in Ubuntu
Thanks! The information about io statistics in Linux is really new and seems to be useful (to me) in such situations.

comment How to unfreeze after accidentally pressing Ctrl-S in a terminal?
Interestingly, when an Emacs is running in the terminal, C-s doesn't freeze it. So, this means that Emacs changes this driver setting and then restores it on exit (or lets it be restored somehow automatically). So sometimes this setting seems to be under an intentional control of a program running in the terminal (which could be the shell or Emacs).

comment GNU/Linux: overlay block device / stackable block device
Another important aspect: Will the devices setup by dmsetup (and losetup) survive a reboot (so that one could write an fstab entry for them), or one will have to run the script to set them up every time?

What does the chunksize parameter to the snapshot target (8 in your case) mean? How to choose it?

The subsequent answer: yes. "Device-mapper allows you … *) To merge a snapshot of a block device back into the snapshot's origin device." kernel.org/doc/Documentation/device-mapper/snapshot.txt

A similar Q&A: LVM-like snapshot on a normal block device.

A subsequent interesting question is whether the acc.umulated changes can later be merged into the original device

Another relevant tag: it's like leaving a read-only snapshot untouched.

comment How to unfreeze after accidentally pressing Ctrl-S in a terminal?
@venkatesan Well, after your comment I went to try it, too: it doesn't work in a terminal where the other two accepted answers work (ctrl-q and ctrl-c). Since I was travelling I onky had a bit unusual terminal at hand: the GNUroot app on an Android device with Debian. The results of my test still make sense: the accepted answer works in this instance of Unix, the new one doesn't.
