I'm not sure I understand your question? What do you mean by
"accessible"? The intention is to _just_ reserve the addr/port.
The socket struct alloc and bind was a simple way to do this. I
assume we'll have to come up with a better way though.
Namely provide a low level interface to the port space allocator
allowing both rdma and the host tcp stack to share the space without
requiring a socket struct for rdma connections.
Or maybe we'll come up a different and better solution to this issue...
