+****************************
+RDMA Transport (RTRS)
+****************************
+
+RTRS (RDMA Transport) is a reliable high speed transport library
+which provides support to establish optimal number of connections
+between client and server machines using RDMA (InfiniBand, RoCE, iWarp)
+transport. It is optimized to transfer (read/write) IO blocks.
+
+In its core interface it follows the BIO semantics of providing the
+possibility to either write data from an sg list to the remote side
+or to request ("read") data transfer from the remote side into a given
+sg list.
+
+RTRS provides I/O fail-over and load-balancing capabilities by using
+multipath I/O (see "add_path" and "mp_policy" configuration entries in
+Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-class-rtrs-client).
+
+RTRS is used by the RNBD (RDMA Network Block Device) modules.
+
+==================
+Transport protocol
+==================
+
+Overview
+--------
+An established connection between a client and a server is called rtrs
+session. A session is associated with a set of memory chunks reserved on the
+server side for a given client for rdma transfer. A session
+consists of multiple paths, each representing a separate physical link
+between client and server. Those are used for load balancing and failover.
+Each path consists of as many connections (QPs) as there are cpus on
+the client.
+
+When processing an incoming write or read request, rtrs client uses memory
+chunks reserved for him on the server side. Their number, size and addresses
+need to be exchanged between client and server during the connection
+establishment phase. Apart from the memory related information client needs to
+inform the server about the session name and identify each path and connection
+individually.
+
+On an established session client sends to server write or read messages.
+Server uses immediate field to tell the client which request is being
+acknowledged and for errno. Client uses immediate field to tell the server
+which of the memory chunks has been accessed and at which offset the message
+can be found.
+
+Module parameter always_invalidate is introduced for the security problem
+discussed in LPC RDMA MC 2019. When always_invalidate=Y, on the server side we
+invalidate each rdma buffer before we hand it over to RNBD server and
+then pass it to the block layer. A new rkey is generated and registered for the
+buffer after it returns back from the block layer and RNBD server.
+The new rkey is sent back to the client along with the IO result.
+The procedure is the default behaviour of the driver. This invalidation and
+registration on each IO causes performance drop of up to 20%. A user of the
+driver may choose to load the modules with this mechanism switched off
+(always_invalidate=N), if he understands and can take the risk of a malicious
+client being able to corrupt memory of a server it is connected to. This might
+be a reasonable option in a scenario where all the clients and all the servers
+are located within a secure datacenter.
+
+
+Connection establishment
+------------------------
+
+1. Client starts establishing connections belonging to a path of a session one
+by one via attaching RTRS_MSG_CON_REQ messages to the rdma_connect requests.
+Those include uuid of the session and uuid of the path to be
+established. They are used by the server to find a persisting session/path or
+to create a new one when necessary. The message also contains the protocol
+version and magic for compatibility, total number of connections per session
+(as many as cpus on the client), the id of the current connection and
+the reconnect counter, which is used to resolve the situations where
+client is trying to reconnect a path, while server is still destroying the old
+one.
+
+2. Server accepts the connection requests one by one and attaches
+RTRS_MSG_CONN_RSP messages to the rdma_accept. Apart from magic and
+protocol version, the messages include error code, queue depth supported by
+the server (number of memory chunks which are going to be allocated for that
+session) and the maximum size of one io, RTRS_MSG_NEW_RKEY_F flags is set
+when always_invalidate=Y.
+
+3. After all connections of a path are established client sends to server the
+RTRS_MSG_INFO_REQ message, containing the name of the session. This message
+requests the address information from the server.
+
+4. Server replies to the session info request message with RTRS_MSG_INFO_RSP,
+which contains the addresses and keys of the RDMA buffers allocated for that
+session.
+
+5. Session becomes connected after all paths to be established are connected
+(i.e. steps 1-4 finished for all paths requested for a session)
+
+6. Server and client exchange periodically heartbeat messages (empty rdma
+messages with an immediate field) which are used to detect a crash on remote
+side or network outage in an absence of IO.
+
+7. On any RDMA related error or in the case of a heartbeat timeout, the
+corresponding path is disconnected, all the inflight IO are failed over to a
+healthy path, if any, and the reconnect mechanism is triggered.

+been accessed and at what offset the RTRS_MSG_RDMA_WRITE can be found by
+using the IMM field.
+
+2. When confirming a write request server sends an "empty" rdma message with
+an immediate field. The 32 bit field is used to specify the outstanding
+inflight IO and for the error code.
