gluster: Add support for creating zero-filled image

GlusterFS supports creation of zero-filled file on GlusterFS volume
by means of an API called glfs_zerofill(). Use this API from QEMU to
create an image that is filled with zeroes by using the preallocation
option of qemu-img.

qemu-img create gluster://server/volume/image -o preallocation=full 10G

The allowed values for preallocation are 'full' and 'off'. By default
preallocation is off and image is not zero-filled.

glfs_zerofill() offloads the writing of zeroes to the server and if
the storage supports SCSI WRITESAME, GlusterFS server can issue
BLKZEROOUT ioctl to achieve the zeroing.
