[Felix Marti] David and Herbert, so you agree that the user<>kernel
space memory copy overhead is a significant overhead and we want to
enable zero-copy in both the receive and transmit path? - Yes, copy
avoidance is mainly an API issue and unfortunately the so widely used
(synchronous) sockets API doesn't make copy avoidance easy, which is one
area where protocol offload can help. Yes, some apps can resort to
sendfile() but there are many apps which seem to have trouble switching
to that API... and what about the receive path?
