[libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] Use posix_fallocate() to allocate disk space on supported systems



Make use of the safezero() function to allocate disk space instead
of safewrite() to write zeros. The safezero() function will use
posix_fallocate() on supported systems.

If progress activity is not requested (current behaviour), the new
safezero() function will allocate the file in one go.

If progress activity is requested, allocate in 512MiB chunks.
