Gmane
From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini <at> redhat.com>
Subject: [PATCH 0/2] Add FALLOC_FL_ZERO_RANGE to fallocate
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 12th June 2012 15:36:02 UTC (over 4 years ago)
This patch adds the FALLOC_FL_ZERO_RANGE operation mode to fallocate,
resembling the similar XFS ioctl.  The new mode can be used with
or without FALLOC_FL_KEEP_SIZE, but of course not together with
FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE.

Other filesystems can then provide the same functionality with a
standard system call.
