Please do not use ** and also return int. The function should return
net_device directly and use ERR_PTR()

What is the point of this dev_hold? This whole thing is under
rcu_read_lock()

IMHO it is probably better to keep with the dev_hold and drop the RCU
while doing rdma_build_skb so that the allocation in here doesn't have
to be atomic. This isn't performance sensitive so the extra atomic for
the dev_hold is better than the unnecessary GFP_ATOMIC allocation

And I think the dev_hold should be in the rdma_get_xmit_slave_udp() as
things called 'get' really ought to return with references.
