Technical Summary
 
    An InfiniBand network uses a link-layer addressing scheme that is
    20-octets long. This is larger than the 16-octets reserved for the
    hardware address in DHCP/BOOTP message. The above inequality imposes
    restrictions on the use of the DHCP message fields when used over an
    IP over InfiniBand (IPoIB) network.  This document describes the use
    of DHCP message fields when implementing DHCP over IPoIB.
