Thanks.

I've pushed this with the other patches to my '9p-next' branch, which
will get merged to linux-next today/tomorrow, so they can soak up some
syzbot testing as well.
That doesn't mean they cannot get reviews anymore, so don't be shy!


Tomas, I didn't see you reply about the 'rename req to rreq' requested
patch for trans_fd, but it's trivial so if you're not going to do it I
will submit something around next week.
