Including reservation in the file

A reservation request can make sure the size of the file is adjusted to include the reservation. Normally, the space of the reservation is not included in the file until an extending write operation requires it. A reservation that immediately changes the file size can generate large temporary files. Unlike a ftruncate operation that increases the size of a file, this type of reservation does not perform zeroing of the blocks included in the file and limits this facility to users with appropriate privileges. The data that appears in the file may have been previously contained in another file. For users who do not have the appropriate privileges, there is a variant request that prevents such users from viewing uninitialized data.
