Looks like a really great start, some nice cleanups as well the added
functionality. I've been meaning to use pahole for a while...

Have you considered drivers/infiniband/core/user_mad.c and ucm.c? I
think user_mad.c is somewhat more important, as that is what allows an
adapter to be used for running the SM. So I think we're still left with
some potential issues around lots of adapters in one system. (I think
use of ucm by real apps is minimal to nonexistent, but someday we should
deal with that too)

- R.
