Thanks for your review!

The head and tail kvec's in rq_res are not kmalloc'd, they are
backed by pages in rqstp->rq_pages[].

If I understand correctly what Neil told us last week, the page
reference count on those pages is set up so that one of
svc_xprt_release() or the network layer does the final put_page(),
in a safe fashion.

Before da1661b93bf4 ("SUNRPC: Teach server to use xprt_sock_sendmsg
for socket sends"), the original svc_send_common() code did this:

- /* send head */
- if (slen == xdr->head[0].iov_len)
- flags = 0;
- len = kernel_sendpage(sock, headpage, headoffset,
- xdr->head[0].iov_len, flags);
- if (len != xdr->head[0].iov_len)
- goto out;
- slen -= xdr->head[0].iov_len;
- if (slen == 0)
- goto out;
