FreeBSD -current uses "external" mbufs.  Previous versions did
not.  It's the new mbuf code.

Look at how it gets the things that it points to.

The problem is that the references are transient, and it assumes
they aren't.

I don't have a ready fix.  You can revert the sendfile code pretty
easily to the 4.3 version.
