     [RESEND, 4/7] xfsprogs: xfsio: add support
FALLOC_FL_COLLAPSE_RANGE for fallocate

Hi Rich,

This isn't ready for being committed into xfsprogs. The kernel code
is still under review, and until we actually have it in a tree to be
merged int eh kernel, we shoul d't be making any userspace changes
at all. Indeed, there's a chance (unlikely, but still there) that
this code may still not end up in the kernel at all...

So, it's probably best right now to revert this patch until we have
the fallocate API support merged into the kernel...

Cheers,

Dave.
