Subject: [PATCH 1/1] virtio/vsock: Make vsock virtio packet buff size configurable

From: Ram Muthiah <rammuthiah@...gle.com>

After a virtual device has been running for some time, the SLAB
sustains ever increasing fragmentation. Contributing to this
fragmentation are the virtio packet buffer allocations which
are a drain on 64Kb compound pages. Eventually these can't be
allocated due to fragmentation.

To enable successful allocations for this packet buffer, the
packet buffer's size needs to be reduced.

In order to enable a reduction without impacting current users,
this variable is being exposed as a command line parameter.
