  When writing trailers in sendfile(2), don't call kern_writev()
  while holding the socket buffer lock.  These leads to an
  immediate panic due to recursing the socket buffer lock.  This
  bug was introduced in uipc_syscalls.c:1.240, but masked by
  another bug until that was fixed in uipc_syscalls.c:1.269.
  Note that the current fix isn't perfect, but better than
  panicking: normally we guarantee that simultaneous invocations
  of a system call to write on a stream socket won't be
  interlaced, which is ensured by use of the socket buffer sleep
  lock.  This is guaranteed for the sendfile headers, but not
  trailers.  In practice, this is likely not a problem, but
  should be fixed.
