There were 5 xfstests patches posted that used the
_test_generic_punch infrastructure to test this functionality.
See the december 08 index here, search for "shared/00[1-5]":

http://oss.sgi.com/archives/xfs/2013-12/index.html

They need a little rework, but otherwise the test code is there.
Having the feature added to fsx and fsstress would probably be a
good idea, though.

Cheers,

Dave.
