there are some reasons we don't do it:

first, attempt to send multiple packets at once makes the code more
complex, especially when you have to deal with multiple encryption levels.
Typically, this is an initial stage of the connection (i.e. handshake)
and you won't get much performance boost from sending multiple packets
at once. That's why we switch to GSO only for application-level packets.

second, sendmmsg() (while being useful) still doesn't provide breakthrough
performance gain. Probably, it would be beneficial to have sendmmsg()
support as well, but currently this is not a top priority.
