:> While the compatibility syscall added to -CURRENT was placed in an

:> the version MFC'd to -STABLE the same day was placed in an #ifdef
:> COMPAT_43 block and named osendfile().
:> Should I just forget about osendfile()? It clearly does not belong in
:> emulators/43bsd. I think I'll write a little note in a comment next to
:> the native syscall about the fix and nuke osendfile(). Any objections?
:imo, the kernel should be less complex. so you are right in nuking it.
:..but, when you succeeded with splitting sendfile, 'osendfile' should maybe
:go to our binary emulation (for fbsd 4).
:just my 2Â¢
Yah, I agree. Nuke it :-)
