chunkd will be soon checksumming data in main memory. That removes
the utility of a zero-copy interface which bypasses the on-heap
data requirement.

May be able to use vmsplice with sendfile (if linux is only target
platform). Haven't tried it myself, but the operations look interesting
at achieving zero copy with sockets from memory addresses.

As an aside, Project Hail -is- intended to be portable to other operating systems. That said, I happily use OS-specific features if they have a measurable impact on our core code paths.

Another OS-specific feature I plan on using, for example, is sync_file_range(2) for large objects. We can make use of the technique used by MythTV for streaming, which Linus describes here:
