Hmm, in this simple up/down case with a switch, I think it might
actually be OK.

Transactions might not complete at the NVMe device before the CPU
processes the RDMA completion, however due to the PCI-E ordering rules
new TLPs directed to the NVMe will complete after the RMDA TLPs and
thus observe the new data. (eg order preserving)

It would be very hard to use P2P if fabric ordering is not preserved..
