I'm actually wondering about the thing Matt obliquely mentioned (which is
far more important than anything I've been fixated on), that is how would
a network interface use this?  The constraints there are:

(1) No uio structure

(2) You sometimes can't do partial operations, the interface may constrain
    you to deliver the full contents of a packet in a single s/g operation.
