to BUG here seems a bit harsh. block_put calls block_get and then BUGs
when block_get fails. Presumely block_cache fails here. Can you add a
printf int block_cache after blk->ops->read and print the error value?

I just saw that there's room for optimization. In block_put we call
block_get which reads from the device, just to overwrite the data

What you are trying to do should work.
