trans2.h there didn't reveal much more than in S4, but I found:

which indicated that 0x200-0x2FF reserved range are from the same
sequence as the obviously TRANS sub-ops like TRANSACT2_* so I guess that
is the reserved range being spoken of.

There is nothing unix-specific about the caching and compression proxy
operations, but it looks like 0x200-0x2FF is the only reserved range
that has someone nearby who can allocate numbers -

So... Steve and Jeremy; please would you allocate me one TRANS2
sub-opode in the range 0x200-0x2FF which can be used for calls between
caching proxies.
