+discard The discard/TRIM commands are sent to the underlying

+ devices and sparse/thinly-provisioned LUNs. The FITRIM ioctl
+ command is also available together with the nodiscard option.
+ The value of minlen specifies the minimum blockcount, when
+ a TRIM command to the block device is considered usefull.
+ When no value is given to the discard option, it defaults to
+ 64 blocks, which means 256KiB in JFS.
+ The minlen value of discard overrides the minlen value given
+ on an FITRIM ioctl().
