OK, another turn around of fixes. This is just the last patch,
whole branch is available at 
http://github.com/mcepl/coreutils/tree/truncate-fallocate (repo
URL is git://github.com/mcepl/coreutils.git).

One note about this patch is that I have unsuccesfully tried to
use @bindir@ to have the script independent for the location of
truncate binary -- unfortunately I haven't managed to persuade
autofoo to expand @bindir@ completely, so I have finished with
${exec_prefix}/bin which is useless. I have now in the patch
temporary /usr/bin/truncate, but I am turning myself towards
stand that user should just have truncate executable in $PATH and
to consider installation where mere truncate doesn't work as

What do you think?
