Subjectnew solaris syscall: sendfilev
Solaris 8 update 7/01 documents a new system call, sendfilev,
which is like a cross between sendfile and writev. A copy of
the man page is at

The question immediately comes up - is there an aio version?
I haven't seen one.

Come to think of it, has anyone thought what an aio version of
plain old writev would look like? lio_listio() is *unordered*,
but writev is ordered. I wonder if something like
lio_ordered_listio() would be useful, or if that's just so complicated
it should be done in userland anyway.
