Subject: RE: [PATCH] RDMA/CMA: Use neigh_event_send() to initiate neighbour discovery.

>RDMA/CMA: Use neigh_event_send() to initiate neighbour discovery.
>Calling arp_send() to initiate neighbour discovery (ND) doesn't do the
>full ND protocol.  Namely, it doesn't handle retransmitting the arp
>request if it is dropped. The function neigh_event_send() does all this.
>Without doing full ND, rdma address resolution fails in the presence of
>dropped arp bcast packets.
