This is ROCE where you do not need to do a join since its Ethernet
Multicast.

On Infiniband (which this patch is not dealing with) you can only send if
you join a multicast group by sending a join request with the MGID to the
SM. SM will reconfigure the IB switches so that your traffic can be routed
to the receivers of the multicast channel.

See the sendonly join description in the IBTA manuals.

Work request? Does that mean it send multicast?
