Soft RoCE driver
Soft RoCE (RXE) - The software RoCE driver ib_rxe implements the RDMA transport and registers to the RDMA core device as a kernel verbs provider. It also implements the packet IO layer. On the other hand ib_rxe registers to the Linux netdev stack as a udp encapsulating protocol, in that case RDMA, for sending and receiving packets over any Ethernet device. This yields a RDMA transport over the UDP/Ethernet network layer forming a RoCEv2 compatible device. The configuration procedure of the Soft RoCE drivers requires binding to any existing Ethernet network device. This is done with /sys interface. A userspace Soft RoCE library (librxe) provides user applications the ability to run with Soft RoCE devices. The use of rxe verbs ins user space requires the inclusion of librxe as a device specifics plug-in to libibverbs. librxe is packaged separately.
