Subject Re: sendfile(2) misbehaves when header iovecs are specified
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2007 23:47:11 GMT
Since the hd^H^Htr iovecs work as expected...

I believe we want to implement the header vecs in terms of a writev call,
followed by a sendfile of the file (with file-length) and trailer vecs.

This will spare us from walking the header vector list for sizes and making
all sorts of asinine adjustments, while reducing it still to two kernel
