Some people do care about stale data. Most obvious way is to
explicitly zeroout data on freeing. But if underling device has
discard support with zeroing we may avoid unnecessary io.

Off course that feature comes with the cost, but only if user actually
use it by setting SECRM flag on inode (which is not the case by default).
