You need to retrieve it from the context passed into the operation.

This is a shared receive context.  See fi_srx_context().  When allocating the endpoint, set the rx_ctx_cnt endpoint attribute to FI_SHARED_CONTEXT.  The shared Rx context will need to be bound to the EP.  This fabtest may be helpful to look at as well:
