Subject: ENOSYS/EOPNOTSUPP fallback?

I ran into what is perhaps a weird edge case. I'm running a system with
musl that uses a ZFS root fs. When I was trying to install some
flatpaks, I got an `fallocate` failure, with no `dd` fallback. Querying
the flatpak team, the fallback to `dd` seems to be something which glibc
does (and so the other components assume will be taken care).

Here is the exchange regarding this issue:
