   That seems reasonable, but I can only find UIO_MAXIOV referenced
in 5 files and defined in 1. Thus, I was thinking about simply
updating those references, but still leaving UIO_MAXIOV defined,
though depricated. 

   If the above is simply not the direction we want to go, then
I beleive that UIO_MAXIOV should atleast be defined in terms
of IOV_MAX in sys/uio.h:

#include <limits.h>     # bring in IOV_MAX
#ifdef _KERNEL

   Question: does anyone know the appropriate #define to use
             for IEEE Std. 1003.1-200x,  or should _SC_IOV_MAX
             simply be put behind the non-expansion controlled
              comment (in /usr/src/lib/libc/gen/sysconf.c) 

             switch (name) {
             /* 1003.1 */
