Subject9p/RDMA for syzkaller (Was: BUG: corrupted list in p9_read_work)

I agree with that, I just have no idea what the "librxe-rdmav16.so" lib
could be doing and described something I am slightly more familiar with
(e.g. libmlx5)
I talked about a common subset of the verb abi because I didn't want to
look into what it's doing, but if it's not enough there's always that
possibility.

That sounds about right, rxe is a software implementation that should
work on most network interfaces ; at least from what I tried it worked
on a VM's virtio net down to my laptop's wifi interface so it's a good
start... I'm not saying all because I just tried a dummy interface and
that returned EINVAL.
The only point I disagree is the 'very simple', even getting that to
work will be a far cry from a socket() call... :)

It needs an "RDMA_PS_TCP" connection established, that requires
everything I described unfortunately...
Once that's established we need to register some memory to the driver
and post some recv buffers (even if we won't read it, the client would
get errors if we aren't ready to receive anything - at least it does
with real hardware), and also use some registered memory to send data.

Thinking back though I think that my server implementation isn't very
far from the raw level in what I'm doing, I recall libibverbs fallback
implementation (e.g. if the driver lib doesn't implement it otherwise)
of the functions I looked at like ibv_post_send to mostly be just
serializing the arguments, slapping the command from an enum in front of
it and sending it to the kernel, so it might be enough to just
reimplement that shim in or figure a way to generate the binary commands
once and then use these values; now I'm comparing two runs of strace of
my test server I definitely see a pattern.

I'll give it a try but don't expect something fast, and it's probably
not going to be very pretty either...

To give a concrete example, here are all the read/write/fcntl calls
looking just at /dev/infiniband in a hello world program that just
establishes connection (server side), receive and send two messages and
quits:


This part apparently sets up the listening connection of the server:

I don't see any read on these fd despite epoll being set to wait for
read events on these so I'm not quite sure where ibverbs knows if the
commands worked or not, but hopefully that illustrats that it's slightly
more complex than just socket/bind/listen/accept/write/close! :)
