The per device/link settings need something different because link names and such can change. Since these are globals, I’d leave them where they are.

I have patches from Parav which extend rdmatool to set global to whole
stack parameters, something like "rdma system ...", so the option to
set through rdmatool global parameters for modules e.g. "rdma system cma set ..."
exists. But I'm not sure if it is right thing to do.
