It's necessary because sendfile() can fail with EAGAIN.

As for your "blocksize = filesize" argument I changed my opinion: despite being less CPU consuming we might incur into problems if that number is too big.  'count' parameter on Linux, for example, is expected to be an unsigned int.
Other plarforms will also use different data types so we better stick with a fixed blocksize value (currently 8192).
