Marker PDU Aligned Framing (MPA) is designed to work as an "adaptation
layer" between TCP and the Direct Data Placement protocol (DDP) as
described in RFC 5041. It preserves the reliable, in-order delivery
of TCP, while adding the preservation of higher-level protocol record
boundaries that DDP requires. MPA is fully compliant with applicable
TCP RFCs and can be utilized with existing TCP implementations. MPA
also supports integrated implementations that combine TCP, MPA and DDP
to reduce buffering requirements in the implementation and improve
performance at the system level. [STANDARDS TRACK]
