    So, maybe something like this?

    svcrpc: don't add to xpt_reserved till we receive

    The rpc server tries to ensure that there will be room to send a reply
    before it receives a request.

    It does this by tracking, in xpt_reserved, an upper bound on the total
    size of the replies that is has already committed to for the socket.

    Currently it is adding in the estimate for a new reply *before* it
    checks whether there is space available. If it finds that there is not
    space, it then subtracts the estimate back out.

    This may lead the subsequent svc_xprt_enqueue to decide that there is
    space after all.

    The results is a svc_recv() that will repeatedly return -EAGAIN, causing
    server threads to loop without doing any actual work.
