    Cache bypass: switch to rx_Readv
    Tests show that cache bypass doesn't scale very well past a few
    concurrent processes, with a lot of lock contention in the RX
    layer.  Switching the implementation to the iovec based rx_Readv
    alleviates much of this.
    Also take advantage of the fact that the upper layer readpages
    only sends down contiguous lists of pages, and issue larger read
    requests and populate the pagecache pages from the iovecs we
    get back.  The loop logic is changed significantly to accomodate
    the new pattern.
    Read throughput is improved by about 30-40% for some parallel read
    benchmarks I use.  Along with some other tweaks, it can allow the
    throughput to be more than doubled.
