The RDMA ODP feature is restartable HW page faulting just like nouveau
has. The classical MR feature doesn't have this. Only mlx5 HW supports
ODP today.

But I still don't understand why a dma fence is needed inside the GPU
driver itself in the notifier.

Surely the GPU driver can block and release the notifier directly from
its own command processing channel?

Why does this fence and all it entails need to leak out across
drivers?
