Actually, that needs updating.  nvme and smc now build.

Patch 42 should address NVMe, I think.  I can't test it, though, as I don't
have hardware.

There should be no callers of kernel_sendmsg() by the end of this patchset,
and the only remaining implementors of sendpage are Chelsio-TLS, AF_TLS and
AF_KCM, which as stated in the cover, aren't yet converted and won't build.

I know.  There are three things left that I need to tackle, but I'd like to
get opinions on some of the other bits and I might need some help with AF_TLS
and AF_KCM.

That said, should I just remove tls_sw_do_sendpage() since presumably the data
is going to get copied(?) and encrypted and the source pages aren't going to
be held onto?
