Commit Message

The current fuse module filters out fallocate(FALLOC_FL_ZERO_RANGE)
returning -EOPNOTSUPP.  libnbd's nbdfuse would like to translate
FALLOC_FL_ZERO_RANGE requests into the NBD command
NBD_CMD_WRITE_ZEROES which allows NBD servers that support it to do
zeroing efficiently.

This commit treats this flag exactly like FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE.

A way to test this, requiring fuse >= 3, nbdkit >= 1.8 and the latest
nbdfuse from https://gitlab.com/nbdkit/libnbd/-/tree/master/fuse is to
create a file containing some data and "mirror" it to a fuse file:

  $ dd if=/dev/urandom of=disk.img bs=1M count=1
  $ nbdkit file disk.img
  $ touch mirror.img
  $ nbdfuse mirror.img nbd://localhost &

(mirror.img -> nbdfuse -> NBD over loopback -> nbdkit -> disk.img)

You can then run commands such as:

  $ fallocate -z -o 1024 -l 1024 mirror.img

and check that the content of the original file ("disk.img") stays
synchronized.  To show NBD commands, export LIBNBD_DEBUG=1 before
running nbdfuse.  To clean up:

  $ fusermount3 -u mirror.img
  $ killall nbdkit

Hi Miklos, did this patch get forgotten?

It's in my internal patch queue.   Will push to fuse.git#for-next in a few days.

Thanks,
