I've only just joined this discussion so I might have missed something,
but the GDAL C API does contain a GDALFillRaster() function which allows
you to fill a band with a particular constant value. There's a
corresponding GDALRasterBand::Fill() C++ method as well.

I don't know if there are any python bindings for this function though
if that's what you need..
