Hum. So, devices on a port must have some compatibility when it comes
to these invariants. It looks like all ports must have the same
iwarpyness, for multiple reasons.

Less clear is how rocee vs ib work within a device... Can you APM
between those two kinds of ports?

All these switches are so ugly :| Function pointers setup in
iw_/ib_create_cm_id would be a lot clearer and safer.

You mean iwarp?
