Limiting the allocation to INT_MAX bytes isn't particularly clever
because it means that the final cluster will be a partial cluster which
will be completed through a COW operation. This results in unnecessary
data read and write requests which lead to an unwanted non-sparse
filesystem block for metadata preallocation.

Align the maximum allocation size down to the cluster size to avoid this
