1) Are you absolutely sure that Solaris's sendfile() works, i.e. that it
   does not return until all the data has been transmitted?

2) I disabled the sendfile() test for Solaris in r3338 (between 2.0.1
   and 2.0.2), but even before that, it didn't work, because the #ifdefs
   in *your* code were incorrect.

3) Experience has shown that even when it works, sendfile() does not
   provide any significant performance improvement unless your working
   set consists mostly of large (multi-megabyte) objects.
