That would be nice - I don't know how much of a leap it is from the
SEND_BUFFER that is there as of -S6, Ingo?  BTW - I understand the
SEND_BUFFER to take the user buffer as input and manage any fragmentation
internally - just rescheduling the user_req_t when the buffer has been fully
sent, or removing it if it was closed?  Is there a way to notify userspace
if the send failed?
