  Disable posix_fallocate(2) for ZFS
  The generic (naive) implementation of posix_fallocate cannot provide the
  standard mandated guarantee that overwrites would never fail due to the lack
  of free space.  The fundamental reason is the copy-on-write architecture
  of ZFS.  Other features like compression and deduplication can also
  increase the size difference between the (pre-)allocated dummy content
  and the future content.
  So, until ZFS can properly implement the feature it's better to report
  that it is unsupported rather than providing an ersatz implementation.
  Please note that EINVAL is used to report that the underlying file system
  does not support the operation (POSIX.1-2008).
  illumos and ZoL seem to do the same.
