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.
