Hi Sverker,

Thanks a lot for these explanations.
Hope that Steve (and Tuncer with his "sendfile" version) can fix that very soon.

BUT, driver "tcp_inet" is already subscribing to output events on that very same file descriptor 24. Driver "sendfile_drv" thus steals the file descriptor from "tcp_inet" as only one port at a time can subscribe to a particular file descriptor event.
> I think you should consider this as an error. Drivers are not supposed to act like this. The normal cause of this is a driver that forgets to deselect a file descriptor before closing it. Despite that I would regard sendfile_drv as the primary suspect here as the new kid on the block.
