It is modeled after the ip command, and for better or worse, the iproute2 package has become the standard drop box for low level kernel network configuring tools. The RDMA subsystem may not be IP networking, but it is still networking, so it seemed an appropriate fit. > 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.
