I stumbled across this thread:

I've attached a patch that uses fallocate(), which may address this
issue. Also, it should be faster than filling the file with zeros from
userspace and may also decrease file fragmentation. I've only lightly
tested the patch.

Sorry my reply isn't threaded properly. I couldn't find an mbox-format
archive to use for replying.
