I'm +1 on the concept of being more lazy about setting the sockopts.  the way we 
do it now on Linux is pretty silly.  we set it one way, discover we're doing 
sendfile and change our minds and flip it the other way, then set another 
option, then undo that and go back to step 1.  these syscalls seem cheap on 
Linux but half of them could be eliminated.  doing so might bypass the 2.6 cork
