+ * FALLOC_FL_COLLAPSE_RANGE is used to remove a range of a file
+ * without leaving a hole in the file. The contents of the file beyond
+ * the range being removed is appended to the start offset of the range
+ * being removed (i.e. the hole that was punched is "collapsed"),
+ * resulting in a file layout that looks like the range that was
+ * removed never existed. As such collapsing a range of a file changes
+ * the size of the file, reducing it by the same length of the range
+ * that has been removed by the operation.
+ *
+ * Different filesystems may implement different limitations on the
+ * granularity of the operation. Most will limit operations to
+ * filesystem block size boundaries, but this boundary may be larger or
+ * smaller depending on the filesystem and/or the configuration of the
+ * filesystem or file.
+ *
+ * Attempting to collapse a range that crosses the end of the file is
+ * considered an illegal operation - just use ftruncate(2) if you need
+ * to collapse a range that crosses EOF.
