[ewg] Which IPv6 multicast group to be used for "mckey" ?

I did google on this and found the following link:

As per above link:

RDMA CM treats AF_INET6 addresses that are either 0 or prefixed with
FF1x:A01B::/32 as MGIDs

1) So, does it mean that mckey works with multicast addresses starting with
FF1x:A01B only ?

2) Again, I did some testing and found that if I use multicast address *
with mckey, then multicast join fails with following error:

#mckey -M FF12:A01B:0:0:0:0:0:A -b fe80::202:c903:0:d1e1
mckey: starting server
mckey: joining
mckey: event: RDMA_CM_EVENT_MULTICAST_ERROR, error: -22
test complete
return status 0

mckey fails if  "X" bit in "FF1X:A01B: .... ", is 2. For any value of X
other than 2, mckey works fine. Can anyone please tell me the reason of this

Thanks in advance,
