Hi Christian,

I am not able to set msize to a higher value. If I try to specify msize
16MB, and then read back msize from /proc/mounts, it sees to cap it
at 512000. Is that intended?

$ mount -t 9p -o trans=virtio,version=9p2000.L,cache=none,msize=16777216 
hostShared /mnt/virtio-9p

$ cat /proc/mounts | grep 9p
hostShared /mnt/virtio-9p 9p 
rw,sync,dirsync,relatime,access=client,msize=512000,trans=virtio 0 0

I am using 5.11 kernel.
