Hi Logan,

I've tried to reproduce this in my setup (ConnectX 4, RoCE mode) using
1e7710f3f6563940bb6bbc94aa8eadfd344a86af as the kernel's head.
I've used d779dd9a9e8f as rdma-core user-space and the latest perftest bits.
I couldn't reproduce this problem.
I'll try to review this commit again, but please provide more information.
For example, do you see the iwpm_register_pid error when these commits
are reverted?
Does this also happen when using the plain rdma-cm examples (ucmatose,
rping)? Does it happen in a plain verbs application (ibv_rc_pingpong)?
I assume you use iWarp, right? Did you test other modes?
Did you reproduce this issue with your ConnectX 4 as well?
Could you please reproduce it with KASAN as well?

PS, e0fcc61113c isn't a bug fix, it's just a simple refactor.

Regards,
Matan
