I need to trace back through the code to see where this is used, but I thought the check was determining if an address conveyed using sockaddr_ib applied to the port. Sockaddr_ib was intended to target IB-classic specifically. It should apply to RoCE/IBoE as well. I don't think it applies to RoCEv2/IBoUDP without a translation.
