Yes, Sure.
Intially, we also thought of adding a new flag to fallocate instead of ioctls.
But as Ted rightly pointed, fallocate works on byte granularity and we
have block aligned restrictions, so once we decided to go for ioctls
and hear other people opninons.
Currently, we can try implementing dave's suggesstion of introducing a
new flag FALLOC_FL_COLLAPSE_RANGE  for falloctae instead of individual
ioctls for both XFS and EXT4.
