I'm currently dealing with -CURRENT right now as I figure that might 
be the best way to deal with the FreeBSD developers.  I'd figure that
once we have sendfile(2) working, we can start dealing with other
issues as I can identify them and pass them along.  And, I might 
just get proficient enough where I can submit my own patches.  =)

I'm about to file a PR in FreeBSD-land and I'll update the STATUS
file with that PR.  -- justin
