    I haven't yet addressed the previous review feedback from
    Miklos. http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1093869
    Running 9p server and client on the same host even though possible
    is not a strong use case at this point. I will get to that later.

    The patch series also don't address cache consistency issue that
    can arise due to direct modification in the server. I am not
    sure we need to complicate the client code for that considering
    the cache model that we follow is loose.

    In short the set of patches help the virtualization pass-through use case
    (http://wiki.qemu.org/Documentation/9psetup)
