Allison Henderson - April 19, 2011, 7:42 a.m.
This patch adds routines needed to zero out the
unblock aligned data of the hole.

The existing ext4_block_truncate_page routine that
is used to zero out unblock aligned data from truncate
has been modified to accept a length parameter, and
renamed to ext4_block_zero_page_range.

The function can now be used to zero out the
head of a block, the tail of a block, or the middle
of a block.  The existing ext4_block_truncate_page
has now become a wrapper to this function
