The sys_fallocate() system call was added to the Linux kernel earlier this
year. I am planning on adding support for the system call to glibc. Is
this work is already in progress? If it is in progress, I would be happy
to help, otherwise I will start working on support for sys_fallocate.
There are also plans to change the functionality of posix_fallocate to
first call sys_fallocate() to perform preallocation, and fall back to the
library implementation if the syscall is not supported in the filesystem.
I will be working on these changes as well.
This should be already supported in the latest CVS tree.
