That seems closer.
We might also want to pre-emptively offer iovs instead of offsets,
because that's the very first thing that's going to be requested after
people prototype having to iterate calling sendfile() for each
contiguous copy region.
psendfilev. I don't think psendfile is useful, and can be easily
provided at the libc level.
