You mean MRU. :)

It's a bit different for vhost because you can have up to four "things"
being looked up at the same time:

- the s/g list that will end up in the skb

- the avail/used ring

- the virtio buffers

- the virtio indirect buffers

So you probably need multiple MRU caches. But yes, MRU can help a lot.
