FALLOC_FL_INSERT_RANGE command is the opposite command of
FALLOC_FL_COLLAPSE_RANGE that is needed for advertisers or someone who want to
add some data in the middle of file. FALLOC_FL_INSERT_RANGE will insert a range
of a file after shifting extents to right as given length.
and this command also has same limitation as FALLOC_FL_COLLAPSE_RANGE,
block boundary and use ftruncate(2) for crosses EOF.

+ * new disk blocks and in this space new zeroed out disk blocks are inserted.
+ * As such, this operation will increase the size of the file by len bytes.

+ * the filesystem and/or the configuration of the filesystem or file.
+ *
+ * Attempting to allocate new blocks using this flag at OR beyond the end of

+ * fallocate(2) with mode 0 for such type of operations.
