SYSFS FILES

  For each InfiniBand device, the InfiniBand drivers create the
  following files under /sys/class/infiniband/<device name>:

    node_type      - Node type (CA, switch or router)
    node_guid      - Node GUID
    sys_image_guid - System image GUID

  In addition, there is a "ports" subdirectory, with one subdirectory
  for each port.  For example, if mthca0 is a 2-port HCA, there will
  be two directories:

    /sys/class/infiniband/mthca0/ports/1
    /sys/class/infiniband/mthca0/ports/2

  (A switch will only have a single "0" subdirectory for switch port
  0; no subdirectory is created for normal switch ports)

  In each port subdirectory, the following files are created:

    cap_mask       - Port capability mask
    lid            - Port LID
    lid_mask_count - Port LID mask count
    rate           - Port data rate (active width * active speed)
    sm_lid         - Subnet manager LID for port's subnet
    sm_sl          - Subnet manager SL for port's subnet
    state          - Port state (DOWN, INIT, ARMED, ACTIVE or ACTIVE_DEFER)
    phys_state     - Port physical state (Sleep, Polling, LinkUp, etc)

  There is also a "counters" subdirectory, with files

    VL15_dropped
    excessive_buffer_overrun_errors
    link_downed
    link_error_recovery
    local_link_integrity_errors
    port_rcv_constraint_errors
    port_rcv_data
    port_rcv_errors
    port_rcv_packets
    port_rcv_remote_physical_errors
    port_rcv_switch_relay_errors
    port_xmit_constraint_errors
    port_xmit_data
    port_xmit_discards
    port_xmit_packets
    symbol_error

  Each of these files contains the corresponding value from the port's
  Performance Management PortCounters attribute, as described in
  section 16.1.3.5 of the InfiniBand Architecture Specification.

  The "pkeys" and "gids" subdirectories contain one file for each
  entry in the port's P_Key or GID table respectively.  For example,
  ports/1/pkeys/10 contains the value at index 10 in port 1's P_Key
  table.

MTHCA

  The Mellanox HCA driver also creates the files:

    hw_rev   - Hardware revision number
    fw_ver   - Firmware version
    hca_type - HCA type: "MT23108", "MT25208 (MT23108 compat mode)",
               or "MT25208"
