[libvirt] [PATCH] storage: fix file allocation behavior in file cloning



Fixed the safezero call for allocating the rest of the file after cloning
an existing volume; it used to always use a zero offset, causing it to
only allocate the beginning of the file.

Also modified file creation to try to use fallocate(2) to pre-allocate
disk space before copying any data to make sure it fails early on if disk
is full and makes sure we can skip zero blocks when copying file contents.

If fallocate isn't available we will zero out the rest of the file after
cloning and only use sparse cloning if client requested a lower allocation
than the input volume's capacity.

Signed-off-by: Oskari Saarenmaa <os ohmu fi>

 the safezero mmap issue fixed in my previous patch never showed up because
 all safezero calls previously had 0 offset (or maybe everyone's using
 posix_fallocate)
