Subject madvise/solaris

If anyone is running a high volume site on solaris you may want to
consider inserting madvise() calls into send_mmap to tell the kernel that
you're going to do sequential reading.  If benchmarks show it to be a win
submit a patch back please :)

My gut feeling is that it's break-even until your working set gets larger
than the RAM available, and then madvise is a win.

There are probably other systems that implement this functionality.
