My two cents after reading this interesting thread and learning
something new:

Reading the EnableSendfile doc, it says this:

* Some platforms may have broken sendfile support that the build system
did not detect, especially if the binaries were built on another box and
moved to such a machine with broken sendfile support.

If you got the binary precompiled, this may be a side effect of letting
others do your work for you.  Compiling software from source on the
machine it will run on is usually the best way to go and would probably
work -- maybe the only difference would be to turn off EnableSendfil in
the config.  However, if you did compile from source and started with
the default config, and still had this problem, then there may be an
opportunity to fix some broken detection scripts.

I read the AcceptEx doc as well.  You don't mention if you tried that
option by itself, and what the results were.  It would be nice to know
definitively and for completion's sake, if it was just the Sendfile
option, just the AcceptEx option, or both that work (each by themselves,
or both in conjunction).
