For xprtrdma, the RPC Call and Reply buffers are involved in real
I/O operations.

To start with, the DMA direction of the I/O for a Call is opposite
that of a Reply.

In the current arrangement, the Reply buffer address is on a
four-byte alignment just past the call buffer. Would be friendlier
on some platforms if that was at a DMA cache alignment instead.

Because the current arrangement allocates a single memory region
which contains both buffers, the RPC Reply buffer often contains a
page boundary in it when the Call buffer is large enough (which is

It would be a little nicer for setting up DMA operations (and
possible registration of the Reply buffer) if the two buffers were
separated, well-aligned, and contained as few page boundaries as

Now, I could just pad out the single memory region used for the pair
of buffers. But frequently that would mean a lot of unused space to
ensure the Reply buffer did not have a page boundary.

Add a separate pointer to rpc_rqst that points right to the RPC
Reply buffer. This makes no difference to xprtsock, but it will help
xprtrdma in subsequent patches.
