xfstest 285 and 286 (I believe these tests were only in the OSS version 
and not in the kernel.org developers version of xfstests).

There is rough version of another test that I got directly from Jeff 
Lui, the person who wrote the SEEK_HOLE/SEEK_DATA feature in XFS. This 
version tests the advance features of SEEK_HOLE/SEEK_DATA.

Ben asked me about this advanced test when he committed the advance 
features of SEEK_HOLE/SEEK_DATA to the XFS OSS tree. To the best of my 
knowledge, this test has not been submitted as an xfstest so we could 
not add it then.
