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 suffixes, respectively.
-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.
