And the device really has the 4 GB:

debian105:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda
dd: writing to `/dev/sda': No space left on device
8376322+0 records in
8376321+0 records out
4288676352 bytes (4.3 GB) copied, 4145.71 seconds, 1.0 MB/s

And no error was encountered while doing this dd write.
Neither in dmesg, nor in kern.log. Everything was fine.
