What is your intention with this, and the other RDMA related, patches?
Is it your intention that I should pick these up or is someone else
supposed to (you sent it to linux-kernel and only Cc:ed linux-rdma)?
Also, are you intending this to go into -rc? If so, why is it dependent
on a patch that didn't land until -rc3?
