Subject Linux TLS sendfile()
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2017 11:09:58 GMT

Apparently there is movement in the Linux world to get TLS-capable 
sendfile(), according to this Linux netdev post:

https://www.mail-archive.com/netdev@vger.kernel.org/msg173632.html

While it's still a bit away, getting this into httpd eventually would 
be a nice combination of the current https mmap performance and 
non-mmap error handling on IO errors.

>From what I understand application support will be simple once openssl 
(or equivalent) supports it, but the openssl/tls buffs can probably 
answer that question with more certainty :)
