sendfile() fails in cases where one or both file
descriptors involved are remote. It fails because it
requires a sendpage() operation and this operation is
not supported currently in ssidev_remote_fops(which
defines remote file operations).

The ssidev_remote_fops->sendpage operation currently
returns with -ENOSYS after printing suitable error message.
This needs to be implemented.

    Note: there doesn't seem to be a ssidev_remote_fops->sendpage operation in SSI-1.9.

    FYI base kernel-2.6 removed support for file to file sendfile(), so this request does not apply to SSI-1.9
