Support for sparse files in LxFS (flow type checker fails) WSL#1732

This issue says it better than I can:

https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL/issues/1732

Real Linux:

$ truncate -s 27927781376 foo
$ ls -l foo
-rw-r--r-- 1 ken ken 27927781376 Feb 27 21:00 foo
$ du --block-size=1 foo
0 foo

WSL 15042:

$ truncate -s 27927781376 foo
$ ls -l foo
-rw-r--r-- 1 ken ken 27927781376 Feb 27 21:00 foo
$ du --block-size=1 foo
27927781376 foo
