Peter Lieven - Oct. 8, 2013, 11:58 a.m.
this patch adds a call to completely zero out a block device.
the operation is sped up by checking the block status and
only writing zeroes to the device if they currently do not
return zeroes. optionally the zero writing can be sped up
by setting the flag BDRV_REQ_MAY_UNMAP to emulate the zero
write by unmapping if the driver supports it.
