Actually, that's not the case. I think with this exception, all the rest of the prototypes
in qed_roce.h aren't really needed, as those functions should only be accessed via
the qed_rdma_ops. I'll remove those later [or we can remove them as part of v2].

The genereal qed* preference is to have empty static-inline implementations
in case content is compiled-out [Look at iov for example].

I agree. Although I'm never clear on the guidelines for the tradeoff - 
How much memory/code is considered too much so that you'd have
To ifdef code out instead of 'wasting'?
[I obviously don't claim 64 bytes of memory hit that threshold]
 
BTW, are you interested in doing a v2 for this? Or would you prefer
if we'd pick it up from here?

Thanks,
Yuval
