Er...no. It will lose this event. Depending on the event...the carnage
varies. We'll take a look at this.

This module is a logical instance of the xx_cm where xx is the transport
type. I think there is some discussion warranted on whether or not these
should all be built into and exported by rdma_cm. One rationale would be
that the rdma_cm is the only client for many of these functions (this
being a particularly good example) and doing so would reduce the export
count. Others would be reasonably needed for any application (connect,
etc...)

All that said, we'll be sure to document the exported symbols in a
follow-up patch.
