No, not at the moment (and I'm not sure we ever would, it would only
happen if the subsystem itself became something like RDMA and INFINIBAND
specifically related only to the INFINIBAND link layer support, in which
case you might want to enable RoCE without INFINIBAND or something like
that, but no one has plans to do that as far as I'm aware).

Followups will be needed.
