Refine searching for GIDs

- The link local prefix should always match the trailing GUID
- mlx HCA's return PREFIX::0 in their gid table for unused entries,
  avoid trying to match for that since it is not valid.

Python RDMA

This package contains the Python module rdma which provides a Python API for the Linux RDMA stack. It is an amalgamation of the functionality contained in the Open Fabrics Alliance packages libibmad, libibumad, libibverbs, libibnetdisc and infiniband-diags.

A new API was developed for this library that is designed to take advantage of Python features and provides a very uniform, integrated design across all the different aspects of IB and RDMA programming. It has a particular focus on ease of use and correct operation of the IB and RDMA protocol stacks.

The module is written entirely in Python and only relies on external system libraries to provide ibverbs functionality.

Prebuilt documentation for the module can be reviewed online, and the source code is available on GitHub.

python-rdma is maintained by Obsidian Research Corp. and the main contact for the package is Jason Gunthorpe <>
