SubjectRe: [RFC] mmaped copy too slow?

it makes sense that read ahead hit assume used-once mapping, may be.
I will try it.

(may be, i can repost soon)

sure.
but current is unnecessary large performance difference.
I hope improvement it because copy by mmapd is very common operation.

Time is solved to it :)
thanks!
