Description:
The maximum number of megabytes the writeback code will
try to write out before move on to another inode.

+What: /sys/fs/ext4/<disk>/extent_max_zeroout_kb
+Date: August 2012
+Contact: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu>
+Description:
+ The maximum number of kilobytes which will be zeroed
+ out in preference to creating a new uninitialized
+ extent when manipulating an inode's extent tree. Note
+ that using a larger value will increase the
+ variability of time necessary to complete a random
+ write operation (since a 4k random write might turn
+ into a much larger write due to the zeroout
+ operation).
