Subject: debugfs feature request: dump sparse files as sparse.

When dumping a file with some messed-up block pointers, I discovered
that I had a huge, and fully allocated destination file.  (ls -s on the
dump displayed some very large number, even though the original file
only had about 8 blocks allocated.)

It wouldprobably make more sense to seek over the gaps to create a
sparse file.
