That's not right, is it? That's a 10GB raw file being used as a
BlueStore block device. It should be a symlink to an LVM volume, not a file.

Can you check the `block` files/symlinks again for all the OSDs and also
what is mounted on the OSD directories? It should be tmpfs directories
with symlinks to block devices. I'm not sure what happened there.
