[Cluster-devel] fallocate vs O_(D)SYNC



It seems all filesystems but XFS ignore O_SYNC for fallocate, and never
make sure the size update transaction made it to disk.

Given that a fallocate without FALLOC_FL_KEEP_SIZE very much is a data
operation (it adds new blocks that return zeroes) that seems like a
fairly nasty surprise for O_SYNC users.
