I've done some testing transferring a
3GB file using smbclient to a recvfile+splice
using server, and I can't get it to
hit the EAGAIN case.

Can you give me more details as to
how you're reproducing this problem ?

I'm still of the opinion so far my
patch is good w.r.t. fixing splice()
to handle non-blocking sockets, but
I need to know exactly how you're
reproducing first.
