If there are more scatter entries than the recommended limit provided by
the ib device, UMR registration is used. This will provide optimal
performance when performing large RDMA READs over devices that advertise
the threshold capability.

From: Yamin Friedman <yaminf@mellanox.com>

Allows the IB device to provide a value of maximum scatter gather entries
per RDMA READ.

In certain cases it may be preferable for a device to perform UMR memory
registration rather than have many scatter entries in a single RDMA READ.
This provides a significant performance increase in devices capable of
using different memory registration schemes based on the number of scatter
gather entries. This general capability allows each device vendor to fine
tune when it is better to use memory registration.

The above comment needs an updated a la:

 * Check if the device will use memory registration for this RW operation.
 * For RDMA READs we must use MRs on iWarp and can optionaly use them as an
 * optimaztion otherwise.  Additionally we have a debug option to force usage

This can be simplified to:

	if (dir == DMA_FROM_DEVICE &&
	    (rdma_protocol_iwarp(dev, port_num) ||
	     (dev->attrs.max_sgl_rd && dma_nents > dev->attrs.max_sgl_rd)))
		return true;

I don't think that it simplifies and wanted to make separate checks to
be separated. For example, rdma_protocol_iwarp() has nothing to do with
attrs.max_sgl_rd.

I'll fix comment.

The important bit is to have the DMA_FROM_DEVICE check only once, as
we only do the registration for reads with either parameter.  So if
you want it more verbose the wya would be:

 	if (dir == DMA_FROM_DEVICE) {
		if (rdma_protocol_iwarp(dev, port_num))
			return true;
		if (dev->attrs.max_sgl_rd && dma_nents > dev->attrs.max_sgl_rd)
			return true;
	}
