SubjectRe: [PLEASE-TESTME] Zerocopy networking patch, 2.4.0-1
   Date: 	Tue, 9 Jan 2001 11:14:05 -0800 (PST)
From: Dan Hollis <>

Just extend sendfile to allow any fd to any fd. sendfile already
does file->socket and file->file. It only needs to be extended to
do socket->file.

This is not what senfile() does, it sends (to a network socket) a
file (from the page cache), nothing more.
