There is only one change in this version.  The default for 
MaxOutstandingUnexpectedPDUs has reverted back to its original value of '0' 
in RFC 5046 for backward compatibility reasons.  A cautionary "SHOULD" has 
been added to recommend negotiating this key since the default value does 
not impose a bound on resources consumable by unexpected PDUs.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the STORage Maintenance Working 
Group of the IETF.

Title           : iSCSI Extensions for RDMA Specification
Author(s)       : Michael Ko
                          Alexander Nezhinsky
Filename        : draft-ietf-storm-iser-05.txt
Pages           : 91

   iSCSI Extensions for RDMA provides the RDMA data transfer capability
   to iSCSI by layering iSCSI on top of an RDMA-Capable Protocol.  An
   RDMA-Capable Protocol provides RDMA Read and Write services, which
   enable data to be transferred directly into SCSI I/O Buffers without
   intermediate data copies.  This document describes the extensions to
   the iSCSI protocol to support RDMA services as provided by an RDMA-
   Capable Protocol.

   This document obsoletes RFC 5046.
