You'd do that on FreeBSD. FreeBSD can collect a complete HTTP request in 
the kernel and only wake up Apache when the data is available. This lowers 
the amount of context switching that goes on.

Nice trick but it does not apply to Linux and CentOS.

(/etc/rc.conf on FreeBSD contains a lot of a system's configuration, e.g. 
network setup, which services to run, command line flags passed to 
services, etc.)
