This will make Dscho unhappy :)

Is there a problem with:

  dd if=/dev/null of="$objdir/info/commit-graph" bs=1 seek="$zero_pos"

?

To my understanding of the specs it's well-defined what it should do,
even when $zero_pos is larget than the file size,  it's shorter,
simpler, and doesn't introduce yet another Perl dependency.
