Subject: Test ext4/001

Hi,

I've checked why test ext4/001 fails for me with DAX and after some
investigation I've realized that the test assumes that
extent_max_zeroout_kb is 32 KB and thus unwritten extent will get converted
to written as a whole and not split. With DAX that doesn't happen (because
of difference between EXT4_GET_BLOCKS_ flags passed in writeback path and
DAX write path) and so the result differs.

So I was wondering how to best fix this. Either we could switch
extent_max_zeroout_kb to 0 to make the result same (but that has a slight
disadvantage that we would lose testing of the zeroout logic) or we could
increase file size so that zeroout doesn't trigger or something else?
Anyone has some idea?
