If restore fork support, what is the expected behavior?
If parent process pinned_vm is x, what is the child process pinned_vm
value after fork? It reset to zero now.
If the parent process call ibv_dereg_mr after fork, should the child
process decrease pinned_vm?
If the child process call ibv_dereg_mr after fork, should the parent
process decrease pinned_vm?
