I did not follow the discussion back when this decision was made, so how did rdma tool end up in iproute2? I do not need the overhead of sometimes I sync the rdma header file and sometimes I don't. One option that comes to mind is to move the rdma header file under the rdma directory. It breaks the uapi model, but it seems that iproute2 is just a delivery vehicle for this command.
