After casually looking at a few iterations of this but trying to figure it out, I hate ths secondary ring buffer API. It's fugly, I can't tell from the writeup if it actually saves any copies, and now it takes *two* syscalls per loop (a commit and a wait) to process more data. Ugggh!
It reeks of premature, wanna-be optimization.
I really hope they just go with the synchronous API and let non-trivial apps people beat on it a while.
