I think, that something like vmsplice may be an option. I see in
sources of file, that prim_inet:getfd is no here (yes, I know that it
is undocumented =)
and that is why I may use some weird tricks with optimizing.

sendfile is a bad option because:
1) I need to serve from memory
2) I need to serve several thousands of connections. Threads are not
the way to go.

However, I think that I will need to patch efile_drv for using
something like vmsplice
