large readwrite = yes

This parameter determines whether or not smbd supports
the new 64k streaming read and write varient SMB
requests introduced with Windows 2000. Note that due to
Windows 2000 client redirector bugs this requires Samba
to be running on a 64-bit capable operating system such
as IRIX, Solaris or a Linux 2.4 kernel. Can improve
performance by 10% with Windows 2000 clients. Defaults
to off. Not as tested as some other Samba code paths.
