> Hello. Would it be possible to port the sendfile system call to a FreeBSD 2.2 based system? Has anyone done this? I am trying to port the code from a later FreeBSD release and I have been unable to find out what the VOP_GETVOBJECT() macro does and how/what should it be replaced with for my case. Any help is appreciated.
It's not impossible that you could do it.
sendfile was introduced just after 3.0 and quite a bit before 3.1
I don't know however how much vm hacking was required to get it to
here is the actual commit message..
this will tell you what was changed.. and at what revision..
What are the chances Nokia would move to a newer version? :-)

Implemented zero-copy TCP/IP extensions via sendfile(2) - send a
file to a stream socket. sendfile(2) is similar to implementations in
HP-UX, Linux, and other systems, but the API is more extensive and
addresses many of the complaints that the Apache Group and others have
had with those other implementations. Thanks to Marc Slemko of the
Apache Group for helping me work out the best API for this.
Anyway, this has the "net" result of speeding up sends of files over
TCP/IP sockets by about 10X (that is to say, uses 1/10th of the CPU
cycles) when compared to a traditional read/write loop.
