Yes, currently, the length has been expanded to the MR's length in such case.

Indeed, I didn't confidence about this, the main logic comes from rxe_mr_copy()
Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, you inspire me that we should consider to adjust the start of iova to the MR's start as well.

My bad, it ever appeared in my mind. o(╯□╰)o

If so, and per the SPEC, why not
   if (plt & IB_EXT_PLT_PERSIST)
      do_somethingA();
   if (plt & IB_EXT_PLT_GLB_VIS)
      do_somethingB();

good catch.

I didn't dig other ARCH yet but INTEL.
In this function, i think i just need to call the higher level wrapper, like wmb() and
arch_wb_cache_pmem are enough, right ?

Again, thank you.

Thanks.
