I must admit to having not looked at the fcall aspect of this. kmalloc
is implemented in terms of slab, so it's not going to be much slower than
using a dedicatd slab (a few instructions to figure out which slab cache
to use).

What would help is splitting the p9_fcall struct from the alloc_size.
kmalloc is pretty effective at allocating power-of-two sized structures,
and 8k + 32 bytes is approximately the worst case scenario. I'd do this
by embedding the p9_fcall into the p9_req_t and only allocating the
msize, like this:

(I only converted client.c to the new embedded fcall way; all the
transports also need massaging)

Regardless of whether any of the other patches go in, this patch is
worth having; it's really wasting slab allocator memory.
