Subject: Re: [virtio-comment] [PATCH v3] virtio-vsock: add max payload size config field

On Thu, Apr 21, 2022 at 01:29:39PM +0300, Laura Loghin wrote:
Added a new field to the vsock device config space that
is limiting the size of the packet payload. This way
the driver is not allowed to allocate huge buffers, and
potentially fill up the entire memory.
Also defined a new feature bit for this, VIRTIO_VSOCK_F_SIZE_MAX,
in order to keep backwards compatibility.
