I haven't been following this very closely but I didn't feel we had
reached a final form of the API, and Sean's ib_mad.h has not been
updated for several weeks. Also (correct me if I'm wrong) you seem to

from queries such as SMInfo, which needs to be passed to userspace to
be handled by the SM. Right now the ib_mad_reg() call just takes
class, version and method, but both PortInfo and SMInfo will be
identical in those attributes.
