Subject: [PATCH 0/9 v2] Remove FMR support from RDMA drivers

This series removes the support for FMR mode to register memory. This ancient
mode is unsafe (rkeys that are usually exposed for caching purposes and the API
is limited to page granularity mappings) and not maintained/tested in the last
few years. It also doesn't have any reasonable advantage over other memory
registration methods such as FRWR (that is implemented in all the recent RDMA
adapters). This series should be reviewed and approved by the maintainer of the
effected drivers and I suggest to test it as well.

The tests that I made for this series (fio benchmarks and fio verify data):
1. iSER initiator on ConnectX-4
2. iSER initiator on ConnectX-3
3. SRP initiator on ConnectX-4 (loopback to SRP target)
4. SRP initiator on ConnectX-3

Not tested:
1. RDS
2. mthca
3. rdmavt

Changes from V1:
 - added "RDMA/mlx5: Remove FMR leftovers" (from GalP)
 - rebased on top of "Linux 5.7-rc7"
 - added "Reviewed-by" Bart signature for SRP
