[New-bugs-announce] [issue10882] Add os.sendfile()

New submission from Ross Lagerwall <rosslagerwall at gmail.com>:
Attached is a patch which implements os.sendfile for unix systems (linux, freebsd, apple, solaris, dragonfly).
It takes the iov initialization code and off_t parsing from i10812.
It encapsulates all the functionality from the various sendfiles which means a fair amount of #ifdefs but the basic case works for all of them.
Tested on Linux & FreeBSD - it should work on solaris but since it needs to link with the sendfile library and I have no idea how to link the posix module with the sendfile library only on Solaris, i couldn't test it. If someone could please contribute this...
I think it might be possible to get a Windows equivalent of this - i'll leave it for someone else to do ;-)
