 Quote from #25161, comment 12:
    Looking at the stack trace and the input log files, I noticed that two
 log files are larger than 2G when decompressed:

 3.2G in/webstats/archeotrichon.torproject.org/dist.torproject.org-
 584K in/webstats/archeotrichon.torproject.org/dist.torproject.org-
 2.1G in/webstats/archeotrichon.torproject.org/dist.torproject.org-
 404K in/webstats/archeotrichon.torproject.org/dist.torproject.org-

   I just ran another bulk import with just those two files as import and
 ran into the same exception.

   It seems like we shouldn't attempt to decompress these files into a
 `byte[]` in `FileType.decompress`, because Java can only handle arrays
 with up to 2 billion elements:
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_Java#Large_arrays . Maybe we
 should work with streams there, not `byte[]`.
