It's disappointing to see this proliferation of system calls, which will now need to be supported forever. Couldn't we have the VM system integrated with I/O and network buffering, similar to NetBSD's UVM, and just use read() and write() with suitably page-aligned and mmapped buffers? Or am I missing something essential?
