Only a few applications are taking advantage of this so far, in part
because it's new.[2]  The transmission bittorrent client is using it,
but only if you tweak a configfile in (IMHO) non-obvious ways.

To enable this, change the preallocation settings from '1' (sparse) to '2' (full preallocation) in this file:

> grep prealloc ~/.config/transmission/settings.json
    "preallocation": 2,

I've built transmission 1.52 with a patch that makes falloc() full allocation by default :

although you'll still have to wipe out your ~/.config/transmission directory first if it already exists, or make the change described above. 1.52 will go to updates-testing after F-11 is released.
