Hi all,
During a Tuesday meeting some weeks ago, I was asked to provide some 
performance figures about the libfabric dpa provider I developed, 
comparing it. I finally managed to perform the comparison on proper 
hardware (I previously only had access to an older and slower version of 
the fabric), and results are attached to this email.

The source of your code is copyleft, which infects the minds of anyone that reads it.  You probably think I am joking or exaggerating, but I am not.  You should talk to lawyers at any company that sells software.
