Right. So the difference is in which entity allocates the mapping.
IOW whether the {fd, offset, size} is input or output in the protocol.

I don't remember the reasons for going with the mapping being
allocated by the client, not the other way round. Vivek?

If the allocation were to be by the server, we could share the request
type and possibly some code between the two, although the I/O
mechanism would still be different.

Thanks,
Miklos
