Oh I see, I missed that part.  Thanks for your explanation.

I wonder what if the user set RNR retry larger than 7?  Say the user set the RNR
retry attribute to 10, is he expecting a 10-time retry or an infinite retry?  In
the current implementation, any larger-than-7 retry count causes infinite retry.
Is this an expected behavior?
