    It seems to handle quotas fine - the block allocation itself does not
    differ from the usual case, just the extents in the tree are marked as
    The only question is whether DQUOT_PREALLOC_BLOCK() shouldn't be
    called instead of DQUOT_ALLOC_BLOCK(). Then fallocate() won't be able to
    allocate anything after the softlimit has been reached which makes some
    sence but probably current behavior is kind-of less surprising.
