This is the seventh version of the patch series. Change log:

* Rebase to the latest rdma-core master (commit a4885eda9addc4)
* Rerun kernel-headers/update against linux-rdma for-next so that the
  kernel commit id in the commit message is correct

v6: https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-rdma/msg99221.html
* Rebase to the latest rdma-core master (commit 14006f2f841b0c)
* Update the ABI symbol version to match new package version; also bump
  the private ABI version because new function has been added to the
  provider interface
* Avoid changing 'struct ibv_context_ops' by replacing SET_OP() with
* Replace sprintf() with snprintf()
* Keep the ops in verbs_set_ops() sorted
* Fix some styling issues: extra spaces, struct 0-initialization, error
  checking control flow

v5: https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-rdma/msg99015.html
* Use a different mr_type for dmabuf so that ibv_dofork_range() is not
  called inside ibv_dereg_mr() for dmabuf based mr

v4: https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-rdma/msg98135.html
* Rework the cmake funciton rdma_cython_module to support both single
  source (.pyx) and multiple source (.pyx + [.c]*) scenarios instead
  of using two separate functions
* Rename 'dri_*' to 'drm_*' for the dmabuf allocation interface
* Add option to dmabuf allocation routine to allow allocation from GTT
  instead of VRAM
* Add proper CPU access flags when allocating dmabufs
* Remove 'radeon' driver support from the dmabuf allocation routines
* Add comand line arguments to the tests for selecting GPU unit and
  setting the option for allocating from GTT

v3: https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-rdma/msg98059.html
* Add parameter 'iova' to the new ibv_reg_dmabuf_mr() API
* Change the way of allocating dma-buf object - use /dev/dri/renderD*
  instead of /dev/dri/card* and use GEM object instead of dumb buffer
* Add cmake function to allow building modules with mixed cython and C
  source files
* Add new tests that use dma-buf MRs for send/recv and rdma traffic
* Skip dma-buf tests on unsupported systems
* Remove some use of random values in the new tests
* Add dealloc() and close() methods to the new classes
* Replace string.format with f-string in python code
* Fix some coding style issues: spacing, indentation, typo, comments

v2: https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-rdma/msg97936.html
* Put the kernel header updates into a separate commit
* Add comments for the data structure used in python ioctl calls
* Fix issues related to symbol versioning
* Fix styling issues: extra spaces, unncecessary variable, typo
* Fix an inproper error code usage
* Put the new op into ibv_context_ops instead if verbs_context

v1: https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-rdma/msg97865.html
* Add user space API for registering dma-buf based memory regions
* Update pyverbs with the new API
* Add new tests

This is the user space counter-part of the kernel patch set to add
dma-buf support to the RDMA subsystem.

This series consists of six patches. The first patch updates the
kernel headers for dma-buf support. Patch 2 adds the new API function
and updates the man pages. Patch 3 implements the new API in the mlx5
provider. Patch 4 adds new class definitions to pyverbs for the new API.
Patch 5 adds a set of new tests for the new API. Patch 6 fixes bug in
the utility code of the tests.
