Subject: [PATCH 3/4] mbox: split header and body processing
Date: Thu, 27 Jun 2019 22:51:47 +0000
Message-ID: <20190627225148.9657-4-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190627225148.9657-1-e@80x24.org>

When dealing with ~30MB messages, we can save another ~30MB by
splitting the header and body processing and not appending the
body string back to the header.

We'll rely on buffering in gzip or kernel (via MSG_MORE)
to prevent silly packet sizes.
