Or,

"mpi" is multi-port information needed for multi-port IB devices
resource sharing.

In simple words, "mpi" holds mapping information between
affiliated ports (master vs. slave) and IB device which it is connected.

Most probably, "mpi data unit" was meant "mpi struct" by Qing.

BTW, Daniel is OOO till 7-23.

Thanks
