splitting sendfile()

I'm curious whether I should split sendfile() at this time.  It isn't used
in the linux emulator and it calls VOP_* functions.  Should I wait until
work on the namecache and vfs has progressed a bit farther?

If I split it now, it looks like kern_sendfile() will be prototyped as

kern_sendfile(struct vnode *vp, struct socket *so, off_t offset,
	size_t nbytes, struct sf_hdtr *hdtr, off_t *sbytes, int flags);
