  I think that patch looks reasonable and clearly documenting the
  problems with UDP is a wonderful thing.
  
  It may be best to send it formally to steved and the list as a real
  [PATCH] with a real description and SoB line.

This feels like the wrong place to document this, since it affects anything
that uses udp, not just nfs.  It also seems like this should be solved in
the network layer with an adaptive frag time.  But I'm not volunteering to
do that.
