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
