[PATCH 1/3] 285: Fix test for ext4 in some configurations

Cc: linux-ext4@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, Jan Kara <jack@xxxxxxx>
Delivered-to: xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx
In some configurations (e.g. 1 KB block size), ext4 can decide it is
better to zero out several blocks rather than splitting unwritten
extent. This changes results SEEK_HOLE / SEEK_DATA returns and thus the
test fails. Fix the problem by disabling the feature for this test.
