Hi Marcelo, Alan,

IIRC, the problem is that BSD and OSF readv/writev(2) manuals
explicitly talked of 32 bit iov_len, thus allowing the application
to pass junk in an upper half of the 64 bit word.
This change broke widely used netscape and acrobat reader,
please revert it until we have a better solution:

        [PATCH] PATCH; make readv/writev SuS compliant
