Sorry, it was implied in my previous test was that I was running against
tmpfs. So regardless of fs, the fallocate keep_size semantics shown in
both cases is as expected: the underlying blocks are allocated and the
inode size is unchanged.

What wasn't totally clear to me when I read this patch was 1. whether
tmpfs refers to Shmem and 2. whether tmpfs allowed this sort of
operation. The test above seems to confirm both, however, right? E.g., a
more detailed example:

# mount | grep /tmp
tmpfs on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,seclabel,nr_inodes=1048576,inode64)
# cat /proc/meminfo | grep Shmem:
Shmem: 5300 kB
# xfs_io -fc "falloc -k 0 1g" /tmp/file
# stat /tmp/file
File: /tmp/file
Size: 0 Blocks: 2097152 IO Block: 4096 regular empty file
Device: 22h/34d Inode: 45 Links: 1
Access: (0600/-rw-------) Uid: ( 0/ root) Gid: ( 0/ root)
Context: unconfined_u:object_r:user_tmp_t:s0
Access: 2022-06-29 08:04:01.301307154 -0400
Modify: 2022-06-29 08:04:01.301307154 -0400
Change: 2022-06-29 08:04:01.451312834 -0400
Birth: 2022-06-29 08:04:01.301307154 -0400
# cat /proc/meminfo | grep Shmem:
Shmem: 1053876 kB
# rm -f /tmp/file
# cat /proc/meminfo | grep Shmem:
Shmem: 5300 kB

So clearly this impacts Shmem.. was your test run against tmpfs or some
other (disk based) fs?

FWIW, I don't have any objection to exposing inode size if it's commonly
useful information. My feedback was more just an fyi that i_size doesn't
necessarily reflect underlying space consumption (whether it's memory or
disk space) in more generic cases, because it sounds like that is really
what you're after here. The opposite example to the above would be
something like an 'xfs_io -fc "truncate 1t" /tmp/file', which shows a
1TB inode size with zero additional shmem usage.
