Daire Byrne reports a ~50% aggregrate throughput regression on his
Linux NFS server after commit da1661b93bf4 ("SUNRPC: Teach server to
use xprt_sock_sendmsg for socket sends"), which replaced
kernel_send_page() calls in NFSD's socket send path with calls to
sock_sendmsg() using iov_iter.

Investigation showed that tcp_sendmsg() was not using zero-copy to
send the xdr_buf's bvec pages, but instead was relying on memcpy.
This means copying every byte of a large NFS READ payload.

It looks like TLS sockets do indeed support a ->sendpage method,
so it's really not necessary to use xprt_sock_sendmsg() to support
TLS fully on the server. A mechanical reversion of da1661b93bf4 is
not possible at this point, but we can re-implement the server's
TCP socket sendmsg path using kernel_sendpage().

Hi-

I intend to include this fix in the first NFSD v5.11-rc pull request.

Changes since v1:
- Further testing and code clean up
