I think there are some confusions on the device.

There is one device, that supports both Ethernet and RDMA(through RoCE).

On the device, RoCE can't function without Ethernet. In the Linux, the RDMA device is modeled as auxiliary device to ethernet device.

The physical device exposes both Ethernet and RDMA management interfaces (as adapters) to the client (Linux kernel). When the MANA RDMA driver was first introduced, RAW QP was supported. There was no need to connect to the RDMA management interface. Many device hardware RDMA capabilities were hardcoded in the driver at the time. (There were some reviewers questioning this at the time).

With this patchset, we are connecting to the RDMA management interface on the device. This is for addressing the prior comments, and for supporting upcoming RC QP.

Thanks,

Long
