[I'm in San Diego right now for the O'Reilly conference, so this
will be short.]

This doesn't work because you now need to adjust the sendfile params.
On FreeBSD/Solaris, EAGAIN means that it sent something - merely 
repeating the call to sendfile with the same parameters is bogus
(same data sent twice).

You need to adjust the parameters.  It's probably cheaper
to bail out and tell the caller how much was sent.  That was how
I interpeted the use cases of apr_sendfile.  There is no contract that
it'll send everything in one call.  -- justin
