Right, sorry.

So what does cap_ib_cm_dev return in your example:

True? Then the code is still broken, having cap_ib_cm_dev doesn't help
anything.

If we make it possible to be per port then it has to be fixed.

If you want to argue the above example is illegal and port 2 has to be
on a different device, I'd be interested to see what that looks like.

Thinking about it some more, cap_foo_dev only makes sense if all ports
are either true or false. Mixed is a BUG.

That seems reasonable, and solves the #10 problem, but we should
enforce this invariant during device register.

Typically the ports seem to be completely orthogonal (like SA), so in those
cases the _dev and restriction makes no sense.

CM seems to be different, so it should probably enforce its rules
