[PATCH] Add support for the sys_vmsplice syscall
sys_splice() moves data to/from pipes with a file input/output. sys_vmsplice() moves data to a pipe, with the input being a user address range instead. This uses an approach suggested by Linus, where we can hold partial ranges inside the pages[] map. Hopefully this will be useful for network receive support as well.
