This document proposes requirements for a Remote Direct Memory
Access (RDMA) Protocol to run on TCP and SCTP transport protocols.
An RDMA protocol provides a general facility for extremely high
efficiency (low CPU cost per unit of data transferred), end-to-end
data transfer.  An RDMA protocol enables high efficiency data
transfer by allowing network interfaces with hardware support for
the RDMA protocol to perform zero-copy data transfer directly among
application buffers.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in

	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
