Yes, this bug didn't come up to the surface since p9_create_twrite is
not even being called anywhere in v9fs. I tripped over it when using 9p
for a different module that I am working on.

Yes, but then that makes the "check for error in return value" in
p9_create_twrite useless since memmove is not going to return an error
in any case.

Going with the existing convention however, I think the bufoverflow
check is unnecessary in p9_put_data and so is the check for error on
return.

I'll resubmit a patch.
