    kernel - Fix sendfile() bugs / nginx
    * Fix a sendfile() bug tickled by nginx.  When sending partial file bodies the
      nbytes test was improperly included the header bytes in its file body limit
      test.  This caused sendfile() to return 0 (complete success) but not
      actually output the entirety of the requested file segment.
    * sendfile() now holds VM pages instead of wiring them.  Wiring the pages
      prevents truncation operations from succeeded and can further cause a
      kernel panic if the underlying file is deleted and the descriptor is
      closed while mbufs related to the sendfile() are still pending on the
    Massive-debugging-by: joris
