    Why has that change been implemented ? As far as I know InfiniBand
    HCAs have either one or two ports. If there are two ports present, at
    most one is active at any time. I don't see the point of making
    individual ports visible and configurable in configfs on the target
    instead of the HCA. If a user enables one port of a HCA but not the
    other, that could result in some really strange and hard to diagnose
    failures if the IB subnet manager decides to switch over to the other
    port. Or am I missing something ?

    Bart.
