As I wrote in a previous comment, it's not so much a question 'if' we can post 
it upstream, but rather 'at which time': We assume that we get a lot of 
resistance upstream if we post any code for v2 in absence of an RFC right now, 
plus we cannot talk about v2 yet for legal reasons yet.
Once a new IETF RFC detailing v2 is out, we can post our full implementation of 
v2 upstream, and these patches will be part of that effort.

  [UBUNTU 20.04] smc: SMC connections hang with later-level

Bug description:
  Description:   smc: SMC connections hang with later-level implementations
  Symptom:       Connections from later-level SMC versions to an SMC-enabled
                 server on Linux hang.
  Problem:       Later-level versions of SMC present, although backwards-
                 compatible, a higher version number, and use larger messages
                 during the CLC handshake.
  Solution:      Adjust for tolerating later version numbers, and support CLC
                 messages of arbitrary length.
  Reproduction:  Enable a server on Linux for SMC, and connect using a later-
                 level version of SMC

  Applicable for: Ubuntu 20.04
