This document updates RFC 5043 and RFC 5044 by extending Marker
Protocol Data Unit (PDU) Aligned Framing (MPA) negotiation for Remote
Direct Memory Access (RDMA) connection establishment.  The first
enhancement extends RFC 5044, enabling peer-to-peer connection
establishment over MPA / Transmission Control Protocol (TCP).  The
second enhancement extends both RFC 5043 and RFC 5044, by providing
an option for standardized exchange of RDMA-layer connection
configuration.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
