I'm confused then.  I say this because of all the things we've talked
about putting this on top of and driving, they've all been in some way
RDMA capable devices.  I haven't seen any talk of running this over
plain ethernet and using TCP/UDP sockets or such.  So, it seems all of
the features fall under the RDMA umbrella as far as I can tell.  Is
there something I'm missing?

Yes, well, marketing often does :-/
