Sure, but if we put this flag to zero, nobody will ever use it and find
any bug.

Thanks for running latest git tree and be part of linux improvement.

If we can add the MSG_MORE at the right place, your workload might gain
~20% exec time, and maybe 30% better efficiency, since you'll divide by
2 the total number of network segments.

Just to be clear : No stable kernel has yet any issue, right ?
