Thanks for the review.

I don't know. Just using the light heuristics of find_vma() shows some
other places. For example, ib_umem_odp_get() gets the umem->address via
ib_umem_start(). This was previously set in ib_umem_get() as called from
mlx4_get_umem_mr(). Should the above patch have just untagged "start" on
entry?

BTW, what's the provenience of such "start" address here? Is it
something that the user would have malloc()'ed? We try to impose some
restrictions one what is allowed to be tagged in user so that we don't
have to untag the addresses in the kernel. For example, if it was the
result of an mmap() on the device file, we don't allow tagging.

Thanks.
