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.

The usage is:

if dst_addr->sa_family == AF_IB
cma_resolve_ib_addr --> cma_resolve_ib_dev

So I guess IBoE using ib address rather than ip?
