SubjectRe: [V9fs-developer] [PATCH] net/9p/client.c: put refcount of trans_mod in error case in parse_opts()
Andrew,

there seem to be some renew of interest in 9P lately, so if you'd like I
can take care of rounding these up and prepare a pull request for 4.19
(as we're already well into 4.18 release cycle, I believe most of the
patches can wait)

This patch however I consider important enough to take for 4.18 so could
you please grab it for now?

I've gathered the Review tags and added my own, feel free to change my
Reviewed-and-tested-by tag to Signed-off-by if it seems more appropriate
as I'm actively pushing for this patch.
