parentIB/mlx5: Fix outstanding_pi index for GSI qps (diff)
RDMA/netlink: Do not always generate an ACK for some netlink operations
In rdma_nl_rcv_skb(), the local variable err is assigned the return value of the supplied callback function, which could be one of ib_nl_handle_resolve_resp(), ib_nl_handle_set_timeout(), or ib_nl_handle_ip_res_resp(). These three functions all return skb->len on success. rdma_nl_rcv_skb() is merely a copy of netlink_rcv_skb(). The callback functions used by the latter have the convention: "Returns 0 on success or a negative error code". In particular, the statement (equal for both functions): if (nlh->nlmsg_flags & NLM_F_ACK || err) implies that rdma_nl_rcv_skb() always will ack a message, independent of the NLM_F_ACK being set in nlmsg_flags or not. The fix could be to change the above statement, but it is better to keep the two *_rcv_skb() functions equal in this respect and instead change the three callback functions in the rdma subsystem to the correct convention.
