+ * the blocks are removed.
+ * Next, it eliminates the hole created by moving data blocks into it.
+ * For extent based file systems, we achieve this functionality simply by
+ * updating the starting logical offset of each extent which appears beyond
+ * the hole. As this flag works on blocks of filesystem, the offset and len
+ * provided to fallocate should be aligned with block size of filesystem.
+ * The semantics of this flag are:
+ * 1) It should be used exclusively. No other fallocate flag in combination.
+ * 2) Offset and len supplied to fallocate should be aligned with block size.
+ * 3) (offset + len) could not be greater than file size.
