Thanks for your attention!

Nope, there are no denied mbuf requests after sending icmp echo-request
through virtio-net with all participants' MTU set to 9000:
0/0/0 requests for mbufs denied (mbufs/clusters/mbuf+clusters)
0/0/0 requests for jumbo clusters denied (4k/9k/16k)
0 requests for sfbufs denied

The icmp echo-reply just doesn't make it through virtio-net (the
echo-request reaches the destination host, and the echo-reply reaches
Keeping everything untouched, just
replacing '-s 5,virtio-net,vmnet0'
