Subject[PATCH 1/7][TAKE5] fallocate() implementation on i386, x86_64 and powerpc
This patch implements sys_fallocate() and adds support on i386, x86_64
and powerpc platforms.

Changelog:
---------
Changes from Take3 to Take4:
1) Do not update c/mtime. Let each filesystem update ctime (update of
mtime will not be required for allocation since we touch only
metadata/inode and not blocks), if required.
Changes from Take2 to Take3:
1) Patches now based on 2.6.22-rc1 kernel.
Changes from Take1(initial post on 26th April, 2007) to Take2:
1) Added description before sys_fallocate() definition.
2) Return EINVAL for len<=0 (With new draft that Ulrich pointed to,
posix_fallocate should return EINVAL for len <= 0.
3) Return EOPNOTSUPP if mode is not one of FA_ALLOCATE or FA_DEALLOCATE
4) Do not return ENODEV for dirs (let individual file systems decide if
they want to support preallocation to directories or not.
5) Check for wrap through zero.
6) Update c/mtime if fallocate() succeeds.
7) Added mode descriptions in fs.h
8) Added variable names to function definition (fallocate inode op)

/*
+ * sys_fallocate - preallocate blocks or free preallocated blocks
+ * @fd: the file descriptor
+ * @mode: mode specifies if fallocate should preallocate blocks OR free
+ * (unallocate) preallocated blocks. Currently only FA_ALLOCATE and
+ * FA_DEALLOCATE modes are supported.
+ * @offset: The offset within file, from where (un)allocation is being
+ * requested. It should not have a negative value.
+ * @len: The amount (in bytes) of space to be (un)allocated, from the offset.
+ *
+ * This system call, depending on the mode, preallocates or unallocates blocks
+ * for a file. The range of blocks depends on the value of offset and len
+ * arguments provided by the user/application. For FA_ALLOCATE mode, if this
+ * system call succeeds, subsequent writes to the file in the given range
+ * (specified by offset & len) should not fail - even if the file system
+ * later becomes full. Hence the preallocation done is persistent (valid
+ * even after reopen of the file and remount/reboot).
+ *
+ * It is expected that the ->fallocate() inode operation implemented by the
+ * individual file systems will update the file size and/or ctime/mtime
+ * depending on the mode and also on the success of the operation.
+ *
+ * Note: Incase the file system does not support preallocation,
+ * posix_fallocate() should fall back to the library implementation (i.e.
+ * allocating zero-filled new blocks to the file).
+ *
+ * Return Values
+ * 0 : On SUCCESS a value of zero is returned.
+ * error : On Failure, an error code will be returned.
+ * An error code of -ENOSYS or -EOPNOTSUPP should make posix_fallocate()
+ * fall back on library implementation of fallocate.
+ *
+ * <TBD> Generic fallocate to be added for file systems that do not
+ * support fallocate it.
