Currently, there are some discussions regarding the RDMA ABI. The
current proposed approach (after a lot of discussions in the OFVWG) is
to have driver dependent object types rather than the fixed set of IB
object types we have today.
AFAIK, some vendors might want to use the RDMA subsystem for a different
fabrics which has a different set of objects.
You could see RFCs for such concepts both from Mellanox and Intel on the
linux-rdma mailing list.

Saying that, maybe we need to make the resource types a bit more
flexible and dynamic.
