SubjectRe: [PATCHv12 1/3] rdmacg: Added rdma cgroup controller
Hi Dennis,

Do you know how would HFI1 driver would work along with rdma cgroup?

Hi Matan, Leon, Jason,
Apart from HFI1, is there any other concern?
Or Patch is good to go?

4.8 dates are close by (2 weeks) and there are two git trees involved
(that might cause merge error to Linus) so if there are no issues, I
would like to make request to Doug to consider it for 4.8 early on.
