       #include <infiniband/umad.h>

       int umad_get_issm_path(char *ca_name, int portnum,char*path,intmax);

DESCRIPTION         top

       umad_get_issm_path() resolves path to issm device (which used for
       setting/clearing PortInfo:CapMask IsSM bit) for portnum of the IB
       device ca_name , it stores resolved path in path array which
       cannot exceed max bytes in length (including NULL terminator).
       Opening issm device sets PortInfo:CapMask IsSM bit and closing
       clears it.

       umad_open_port() returns 0 on success and a negative value on
       error as follows:
        -ENODEV IB device can't be resolved
        -EINVAL port is not valid (bad portnum or no umad device)
