--- Comment #1 from Raghavendra Bhat <rabhat at redhat.com> ---

fallocate -l <size> <file> command fails when the size mentioned is bigger than
the brick size where fallocate is being directed to. But, it would have led to
non-zero blocks usage by the file (used in fallocate command) even though
fallocate fails. This leads to increased brick usage despite fallocate getting

Better would be to ensure that, the file used in fallocate is truncated if
fallocate fails.
