#include <infiniband/mlx5dv.h>

struct mlx5dv_devx_uar *mlx5dv_devx_alloc_uar(struct ibv_context *context,
                                              uint32_t flags);

void mlx5dv_devx_free_uar(struct mlx5dv_devx_uar *devx_uar);

    uint32_t page_id;
    off_t mmap_off;
    uint64_t comp_mask;
};
reg_addr
