when a discarded area is read the discard_zeroes_data
parameter will be set to one. Otherwise it will be 0 and
the result of reading a discarded area is undefined.
+What: /sys/block/<disk>/queue/write_same_max_bytes
+Date: January 2012
+Contact: Martin K. Petersen <martin.petersen@oracle.com>
+ Some devices support a write same operation in which a
+ single data block can be written to a range of several
+ contiguous blocks on storage. This can be used to wipe
+ areas on disk or to initialize drives in a RAID
+ configuration. write_same_max_bytes indicates how many
+ bytes can be written in a single write same command. If
+ write_same_max_bytes is 0, write same is not supported
+ by the device.
