As Alan said, the smb protocol is pretty ugly. This patch makes samba use
sendfile for unchained read_and_X replies. I could hook this into some of
the other *read* replies but this is the one smbtorture uses so it served my
purpose. Of course this is against the current CVS head, not some wimpy
stable branch. :)

I still need to write some code to make this safe (things will break badly
if multiple clients hit the same file and one of them truncates at just the
right time).

In my tests, this only improved things by a couple of percent because we do
so many other things than just serving files in real life (well if you can
call netbench land real life).
