The RPC/RDMA Receive buffer is kmalloc'd, that would be used for
rq_arg.head/tail. But for TCP, I believe the head kvec is always
pulled out of rq_pages[].

svc_process() sets up rq_res.head this way:

1508 resv->iov_base = page_address(rqstp->rq_respages[0]);
1509 resv->iov_len = 0;

I would need to audit the code to confirm that rq_res.tail is never
kmalloc'd.
