The fourth edition of SMCv2 adds the SMC version 2.1 feature updates for
SMC-Dv2 with virtual ISM. Virtual ISM are created and supported mainly by
OS or hypervisor software, comparable to IBM ISM which is based on platform
firmware or hardware.

With the introduction of virtual ISM, SMCv2.1 makes some updates:

- Introduce feature bitmask to indicate supplemental features.
- Reserve a range of CHIDs for virtual ISM.
- Support extended GIDs (128 bits) in CLC handshake.

So this patch set aims to implement these updates in Linux kernel. And it
acts as the first part of SMC-D virtual ISM extension & loopback-ism [1].


- Fix sparse complaint;
- Rebase to the latest net-next;

It looks good to me. The testing looks good as well.
If these comments are worked out, I'd like to give my Reviewed-by for the next version.
BTW, for the next version, you need to rebase your kernel.
