I assume that when write_file is called, the receiver already has determined
that the buffer has to be written to disk. In case of inplace, we cannot assume
that the file contains zeros in this location, nor it's sparse. So we need to
make sure it really contains what we require.
I don't see how any information from the generator can help to avoid this step.
Can you please elaborate on your question?
