SubjectRe: [PATCH v3] manpage: update FALLOC_FL_INSERT_RANGE flag in fallocate
Hi Namjae,

> Update FALLOC_FL_INSERT_RANGE flag in fallocate.

Sorry -- I should have said that I already applied your V2
patch and made the fix we discussed (and that you add below).
I just hadn't pushed to Git yet. Done now.

Cheers,

Michael
