Subject[PATCH 2/5][TAKE3] fallocate() on s390
This is the patch suggested by Martin Schwidefsky to support
sys_fallocate() on s390(x) platform.

He also suggested a wrapper in glibc to handle this system call on
s390. Posting it here so that we get feedback for this too.

.globl __fallocate
ENTRY(__fallocate)
stm %r6,%r7,28(%r15) /* save %r6/%r7 on stack */
cfi_offset (%r7, -68)
cfi_offset (%r6, -72)
lm %r6,%r7,96(%r15) /* load loff_t len from stack */
svc SYS_ify(fallocate)
lm %r6,%r7,28(%r15) /* restore %r6/%r7 from stack */
br %r14
PSEUDO_END(__fallocate)

Here are the comments and the patch to linux kernel from him.

-------------
From: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>
This patch implements support of fallocate system call on s390(x)
platform. A wrapper is added to address the issue which s390 ABI has
with the arguments of this system call.
