Hi Matthew,

Thank you for looking on that, I have a couple of comments to the proposed patch.

1. IBTA spec doesn't talk at all about the size of TransactionID, more
on that in section "13.4.6.4 TRANSACTION ID USAGE", the specification
says: "The contents of the TransactionID (TID) field are implementation-
dependent. So let's don't call it mlx4 bug.

2. The current implementation means that in mlx5-only network we will
still have upto (1 << 24) TIDs. I don't know if it is really important,
but worth to mention.

Thanks
