    Pull more rdma updates from Doug Ledford:
     "This is the second group of code for the 4.7 merge window.  It looks
      large, but only in one sense.  I'll get to that in a minute.  The list
      of changes here breaks down as follows:
    
       - Dynamic counter infrastructure in the IB drivers
    
         This is a sysfs based code to allow free form access to the
         hardware counters RDMA devices might support so drivers don't need
         to code this up repeatedly themselves
    
       - SendOnlyFullMember multicast support
    
       - IB router support
    
       - A couple misc fixes
    
       - The big item on the list: hfi1 driver updates, plus moving the hfi1
         driver out of staging
    
      There was a group of 15 patches in the hfi1 list that I thought I had
      in the first pull request but they weren't.  So that added to the
      length of the hfi1 section here.
    
      As far as these go, everything but the hfi1 is pretty straight
      forward.
    
      The hfi1 is, if you recall, the driver that Al had complaints about
      how it used the write/writev interfaces in an overloaded fashion.  The
      write portion of their interface behaved like the write handler in the
      IB stack proper and did bi-directional communications.  The writev
      interface, on the other hand, only accepts SDMA request structures.
      The completions for those structures are sent back via an entirely
      different event mechanism.
    
      With the security patch, we put security checks on the write
      interface, however, we also knew they would be going away soon.  Now,
      we've converted the write handler in the hfi1 driver to use ioctls
      from the IB reserved magic area for its bidirectional communications.
      With that change, Intel has addressed all of the items originally on
      their TODO when they went into staging (as well as many items added to
      the list later).
    
      As such, I moved them out, and since they were the last item in the
      staging/rdma directory, and I don't have immediate plans to use the
      staging area again, I removed the staging/rdma area.
    
      Because of the move out of staging, as well as a series of 5 patches
      in the hfi1 driver that removed code people thought should be done in
      a different way and was optional to begin with (a snoop debug
      interface, an eeprom driver for an eeprom connected directory to their
      hfi1 chip and not via an i2c bus, and a few other things like that),
      the line count, especially the removal count, is high"
