int ibv_attach_mcast(struct ibv_qp *qp, const union ibv_gid *gid,
int ibv_detach_mcast(struct ibv_qp *qp, const union ibv_gid *gid,
DESCRIPTIONibv_attach_mcast() attaches the QP qp to the multicast group having MGID gid and MLID lid.
ibv_detach_mcast() detaches the QP qp to the multicast group having MGID gid and MLID lid.
RETURN VALUEibv_attach_mcast() and ibv_detach_mcast() returns 0 on success, or the value of errno on failure (which indicates the failure reason).
NOTESOnly QPs of Transport Service Type IBV_QPT_UD may be attached to multicast groups.
If a QP is attached to the same multicast group multiple times, the QP will still receive a single copy of a multicast message.
In order to receive multicast messages, a join request for the multicast group must be sent to the subnet administrator (SA), so that the fabric's multicast routing is configured to deliver messages to the local port.
