I haven=92t done any benchmarking of recent OpenAFS clients, so I can=92t =
comment on the level of the performance penalty. However, when I =
originally wrote the splice() code it had a significant performance =
benefit, so I would imagine disabling it will have a speed impact.

I can confirm that the AuriStor client takes a different approach to =
fixing this issue, and has no performance hit from doing so.
