SubjectRe: [openib-general] [PATCH v2 04/13] Connection Manager

If you require more details on how this all works - it was fully explored
in the IETF RDDP workgroup - may I suggest a reading of the RDMA Security
Considerations draft which goes through many of the issues on how one
relates to a host stack. This complements the MPA spec and supports much
of what Steve has already responded to during this string of e-mails. We
took a great deal of time and debate to insure this can work efficiently
and without confusion in terms of who owns what and when.
