Yes, with this patch, the SIF user level provider library is able to 
use either kernel verbs or user verbs on a per QP basis. This is a
very useful capability that the verbs API neatly lends itself almost 
completely to, except for this particular missing piece.

I agree this would be possible, but that would have been
to implement a generic feature which seems a natural completion
of what is already in there in provider specific code, something 
I would have thought from other discussions here is considered bad
