Got it.  What happens is that on zero-copy path a signal hitting in the
end of p9_virtio_zc_request() is treated as "it hadn't been sent, got
an error, fuck off and mark the tag ready for reuse".  No TFLUSH issued,
etc.  As the result, when reply finally *does* arrive (we had actually
sent the request), it plays hell on the entire thing - tag might very
well have been reused by then and an unrelated request sent with the
same tag.  Depending on the timing, results can get rather ugly.

There are still other bogosities found in this thread, and at the very
least we need to cope with genuine corrupted response from server, but
the patch below fixes the problem with stray responses here and stops the
"what do you mean, you'd written 4K?  I've only sent 30 bytes!" problems
here.  10 minutes of trinity running without triggering it, while without
that patch it triggers in 2-3 minutes.

Could you verify that the patch below deals with your setup as well?
If it does, I'm going to put it into tonight's pull request, after I get
some sleep...  Right now I'm about to crawl in direction of bed - 25 hours
of uptime is a bit too much... ;-/
