It is rc1 - and crashes.
I test on i386 via epia (the only machine which runs x86 right now).

If there will not be any new patches, I will create 2.6.20 test tree
tomorrow.

Ok, I will create such a monster tomorrow :)

I will use the same base for threadlet as for kevent/epoll - there is no
parser, just sendfile() of the static file which contains http header
and actual page.

threadlet1 {
accept()
create threadlet2 {
send data
}
}

Is above scheme correct for threadlet scenario?

But note, that on my athlon64 3500 test machine kevent is about 7900
requests per second compared to 4000+ epoll, so expect a challenge.
lighhtpd is about the same 4000 requests per second though, since it can
not be easily optimized for kevents.
