I think what you are saying is that in your environment,
_require_xfs_io_falloc_punch() is not properly deciding
whether the fpunch operation is supported. And you are
suggesting a way to determine it properly, is that right?
Unfortunately it is difficult to know whether your
suggestion is a proper fix without knowing details of
your current system, as well as details about what
you are seeing that is incorrect.
We welcome suggested fixes from people. Often that
takes the form of a patch that proposes a fix, but
if enough precise information is provided about the
problem we can sometimes develop a fix for you.
Can you supply either a patch with a proposed fix,
or else provide more information about exactly
what you are seeing? Otherwise I don't think
we're going to be able to help.
