I took a look at that series and unless I overlooked something important
it seems that there's actually not that much overlap. Denis and Anton's
series deals with cluster preallocation and mine reduces the number of
I/O operations when there's a COW scenario. Most of my modifications are
in the peform_cow() function, but they barely touch that one.

I think we can review both separately, either of us can rebase our
series on top of the other, I don't expect big changes or conflicts.
