There is an updated pull request by j-c-m against master on the Samba Samba Github repository

https://github.com/j-c-m/samba sendfile_bsd_linux

    Fix FreeBSD/Darwin & Linux sendfile.
    Use poll() to emulate a blocking sendfile().

    This avoids spinning on EAGAIN/EWOULDBLOCK under Linux implementation,
    which greatly reduces CPU usage.


    This fixes FreeBSD/Darwin implementation, which under most cases did
    not work, it would break early when nwritten == 0.  Which would happen
    anytime it spun on EAGAIN writing 0 bytes.
