glusterfs: discard (hole punch) support
Add support for the DISCARD file operation. Discard punches a hole in a file in the provided range. Block de-allocation is implemented via fallocate() (as requested via fuse and passed on to the brick fs) but a separate fop is created within gluster to emphasize the fact that discard changes file data (the discarded region is replaced with zeroes) and must invalidate caches where appropriate.

+# Bug 963678 - Test discard functionality
+# Test that basic discard (hole punch) functionality works via the fallocate
+# command line tool. Hole punch deallocates a region of a file, creating a hole
+# and a zero-filled data region. We verify that hole punch works, frees blocks
+# and that subsequent reads do not read stale data (caches are invalidated).
+# NOTE: fuse fallocate is known to be broken with regard to cache invalidation
+# up to 3.9.0 kernels. Therefore, FOPEN_KEEP_CACHE is not used in this
+# test (opens will invalidate the fuse cache).
