The patch works perfectly! Thanks!

PS! What I meant by "fixable" was related to whether the problem with
tmpfs was in distcc's usage of sendfile() or in the sendfile() 
function itself. I'd call it "workaroundable" per my definition.

I searched google for "tmpfs sendfile" today and by the thread 
"http://banyan.dlut.edu.cn/news/052201/0006.html" on linux-kernel it
appears the problem is that tmpfs doesn't export all functions needed
by sendfile, and it's not worth fixing.
