Hi Christian,

thanks for the follow up, this has been on my todolist forever and
despite how simple it is I never took the time for it...

I've applied both patches to my -next branch... We're a bit tight for
this merge window (v5.15) but I'll send it to linux mid next week anyway.

I've also added this patch (sorry for laziness) for TCP, other transports
are OK iirc:

Subject: [PATCH] net/9p: increase tcp max msize to 1MB

Historically TCP has been limited to 64K buffers, but increasing msize provides
huge performance benefits especially as latency increase so allow for bigger buffers.

Ideally further improvements could change the allocation from the current contiguous chunk
in slab (kmem_cache) to some scatter-gather compatible API...
