SubjectRe: [PLEASE-TESTME] Zerocopy networking patch, 2.4.0-1
   Date: Tue, 9 Jan 2001 14:25:42 +0000
From: "Stephen C. Tweedie" <sct@redhat.com>

Perhaps tcp can merge internal 4K requests, but if you're doing udp
jumbograms (or STP or VIA), you do need an interface which can give
the networking stack more than one page at once.

All network protocols can use the current interface and get the result
you are after, see MSG_MORE. TCP isn't "special" in this regard.

Later,
