DESCRIPTIONibv_create_comp_channel() creates a completion event channel for the RDMA device context context.
RETURN VALUEibv_create_comp_channel() returns a pointer to the created completion event channel, or NULL if the request fails.
NOTESA "completion channel" is an abstraction introduced by libibverbs that does not exist in the InfiniBand Architecture verbs specification or RDMA Protocol Verbs Specification. A completion channel is essentially file descriptor that is used to deliver completion notifications to a userspace process. When a completion event is generated for a completion queue (CQ), the event is delivered via the completion channel attached to that CQ. This may be useful to steer completion events to different threads by using multiple completion channels.
