* struct p9_trans_module - transport module interface
* @list: used to maintain a list of currently available transports
* @name: the human-readable name of the transport
* @maxsize: transport provided maximum packet size
* @def: set if this transport should be considered the default
* @create: member function to create a new connection on this transport
* @request: member function to issue a request to the transport
* @cancel: member function to cancel a request (if it hasn't been sent)
* This is the basic API for a transport module which is registered by the
* transport module with the 9P core network module and used by the client
* to instantiate a new connection on a transport.
* BUGS: the transport module list isn't protected.
