Unfortunately, I think that's the wrong approach -- that reduces the
system performance on just the files that are likely to actually benefit
from mmap().

The right approach is probably to mmap() a window into the file, and slide
the window along as data is transmitted. 

Or use a non-stupid operating system. 

I'd say that IRIX is broken and we should just disable USE_MMAP_FILES on
it.
