Does anyone know why util-linux disables fallocate for nativesdk and
native builds?
Seems to date back to this commit:

+# fallocate is glibc 2.10, fallocate64 is glibc 2.11
+# we need to disable it for older versions
+EXTRA_OECONF += "ac_cv_func_fallocate=no"
+EXTRA_OECONF_virtclass-native += "--disable-fallocate
Well done, it was late and I got bored following the git-blame log. :)

Sounds like historical reasons to me, does anyone object to dropping this?
