Technical Summary:
   
   This document specifies the format of RDMA-CM Private Data exchanged
   between RPC-over-RDMA version 1 peers as part of establishing a
   connection.  Such private data is used to indicate peer support for
   remote invalidation and larger-than-default inline thresholds.  The
   addition of the private data payload specified in this document is an
   OPTIONAL extension.  The RPC-over-RDMA version 1 protocol does not
   require the payload to be present.
