I wonder whether it would make sense to update 9p section in MAINTAINERS to
better reflect current reality, at least in a way such that contributors would
CC me right away?

Eric, Latchesar, what do you think?

Hoo, Dominique, please hold your horses. I currently can't keep up with
reviewing and testing all pending 9p patches right now.

Personally I would hold these patches back for now. They would make sense on
current situation on master, because ATM basically all 9p requests simply
allocate exactly 'msize' for any 9p request.

However that's exactly what I was going to address with my already posted
patches (relevant patches regarding this issue here being 9..12):
And in the cover letter (section "STILL TODO" ... "3.") I was suggesting to
subsequently subdivide kmem_cache_alloc() into e.g. 4 allocation size
categories? Because that's what my already posted patches do anyway.

How about I address the already discussed issues and post a v5 of those
patches this week and then we can continue from there?

Best regards,
Christian Schoenebeck
