Huh? Why are you "relative" sure? Didn't you take a look into
the Cygwin sources which would be the right place to learn how
something's implemented? net.cc is a good starting point.
I'm a bit surprised by your results, though. Since AF_LOCAL
and AF_INET are implemented the same way, they should be
nearly equally fast^Wslow. AF_LOCAL just has a bit of an
overhead by some additional tests but the naked read() and
write() calls should be nearly equivalent.
