> Are you going to add vmsplice() and tee() too? Since it is Linux-specific API, would not be better to add a purposed module linux?

It's not uncommon that a syscall added to the Linux kernel is later added to other platforms.

Example: getrandom() exists in Linux and Solaris.

Example: memfd_create() was designed in Linux, and added later to FreeBSD: https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/commit/575e351fdd996f72921b87e71c2c26466e887ed2 (see bpo-41013).
