xfs_mkfile creates one or more files. The file is padded with zeroes
by default. The default size is in bytes, but it can be flagged as
kilobytes, blocks, megabytes, or gigabytes with the k, b, m, or g
-v Verbose. Report the names and sizes of created files.
-n No bytes. Create a holey file - that is, do not write out any
data, just seek to end of file and write a block.
-p Preallocate. The file is preallocated, then overwritten with
zeroes, then truncated to the desired size.
-V Prints the version number and exits.
