+      <p>iWARP is a protocol suite that enables efficient movement
+	of data across the network, building on Remote Direct Memory
+	Access, Direct Data Placement, and Marker PDU Aligned Framing.
+	It endeavors to avoid unnecessary (local) data copies and
+	offload work from the main CPU to dedicated hardware.</p>
+
+      <p>An initial commit adding iWARP support for the Intel X722
+	family of network adapters is under review.  This is an
+	important step towards introducing full iWARP support on
+	systems equipped with Intel C620 Series Chipsets.  Currently,
+	with the <tt>iw_ixl</tt> driver, only the kVerbs API is
+	supported.</p>
