It's entirely possible I have this wrong, but the intent is to export some
infiniband communication management message counters and relate them to the
corresponding ib_device/port. For example:

/sys/class/infiniband_cm/<device name>/<port number>/<counter group>/<counter>

(E.g. /sys/class/infiniband_cm/mthca0/1/cm_tx_msgs/req)

If there's a better way to handle this, I have no objection to changing it.
