  And BTW, since FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE does not change the file size, should
not we enforce that FALLOC_FL_KEEP_SIZE is / is not set? I don't mind too
much which way but keeping it ambiguous (ignored) in the interface usually
proves as a bad idea in future when we want to further extend the interface...
