efadv - Direct verbs for efa devices
The libibverbs API is an abstract one. It is agnostic to any underlying provider specific implementation. While this abstraction has the advantage of user applications portability, it has a performance penalty. For some applications optimizing performance is more important than portability.
The efa direct verbs API is intended for such applications. It exposes efa specific low level operations, allowing the application to bypass the libibverbs API.
