Orion does support filesystems and has done so for years. All you have to do is create a file that is a multiple of the block size you'll be testing, e.g.:  

Create a 4GB file:  

dd if=/dev/zero of=/u01/oracle/mytest.dbf bs=8k count=524288  

Then, put this file in your test.lun file:  

>cat mytest.lun


Then, run orion:  

orion -run simple -testname mytest -num_disks 1

I just wish Orion would support filesystems rather than raw devices-
