In regards to "use sendfile (S)" there is a contradiction in smb.conf

In the explanation it says:
This is off by default as it's effects are unknown as yet. In particular, it
appears that Windows 9X clients fail to work against Samba with this
parameter enabled in config.

However it also says:
Default: use sendfile = yes

Looking at the code, currently if sendfile is available, it will be used
(source\param\loadparm.c(555): True /* bUseSendfile */)
