I think that you could get it fast more quickly in C but there aren't any
facilities in C that you can't use in MI.  I always found that writing IO in
MI to be a pain.  However, I have a suggestion for you:

When you execute the IO that pulls in the 128k block from the file, take the
address of the beginning of the block from the IO feedback area and just
copy the whole thing directly into the user space - in other words, don't
bother to read anything into a buffer, just copy it directly from the VMC
buffer.  Is there something that will copy more than 32k at a time or are
you stuck with CPYBLA?  If not, you have to make four operations.
