    Interesting, I didn't know this---I wrote the code from scratch.

    I took the description from the man pages ("This operation is a fast
    method of overwriting any from the range specified with zeros without
    removing any blocks or having to write zeros to disk"), so perhaps those
    will have to be patched as well.

    Sure. Thanks for the hints, I'll submit a v2 (may take a while as I'll
    leave for holiday soon).
