SubjectRe: Socket Direct Protocol: help (2)
You are right - I missed it.

Andrea, Please open a bug at bugzilla (https://bugs.openfabrics.org) -
so that you will be notified as soon as I will fix SDP not use FMR if
not supported.

As to fastreg_mrs support - I don't know this mechanism. Do you mean FRWR?

Thanks,
Amir
