I did a Windows 7 installation under qemu today, and the result is:

- it TRIMs the whole device early during the installation
- after that I see a constant stream of small trims during the
installation. It's using lots of non-contiguous ranges in a single
TRIM command, with sizes down to 8 sectors (4k) for a single range.
- after installation there's is some background-trimming going on
even when doing no user interaction with the VM at all.
- removing files leads to an instant stream of TRIMs, again vectored
and of all sizes down to 4k. Note that the TRIMs are a lot more
instant than even with btrfs and -o discard, which delays most
TRIMs until doing a sync.
