I like this approach.  Since the code is already written for pretty much
every permutation: regular non-sparse file, regular sparse file, block
device, adding the new API isn't a lot of work.  That gives users the
greatest flexibility for choosing the time of the zero operation, which
is important since it's time consuming.

Yeah, that'd be a nice feature.
