parentIB/mlx5, ib_post_send(), IB_WR_REG_SIG_MR: Do not modify the 'wr' argument (diff)
RDMA, core and ULPs: Declare ib_post_send() and ib_post_recv() arguments const
Since neither ib_post_send() nor ib_post_recv() modify the data structure their second argument points at, declare that argument const. This change makes it necessary to declare the 'bad_wr' argument const too and also to modify all ULPs that call ib_post_send(), ib_post_recv() or ib_post_srq_recv(). This patch does not change any functionality but makes it possible for the compiler to verify whether the ib_post_(send|recv|srq_recv) really do not modify the posted work request. To make this possible, only one cast had to be introduce that casts away constness, namely in rpcrdma_post_recvs(). The only way I can think of to avoid that cast is to introduce an additional loop in that function or to change the data type of bad_wr from struct ib_recv_wr ** into int (an index that refers to an element in the work request list). However, both approaches would require even more extensive changes than this patch.
