You explicitly say "userspace" - why would an upper layer need to
know the link, transport and management details? These seem to be
mid-layer matters.

I do see a ULP needing to know the address family needed to pass to
rdma_connect and rdma_listen, so I would add "IP", but not "iWARP".

This is good, but it also needs an attribute to signal the need for a
remote-writable RDMA Read sink buffer, for today's iWARP.
