Heh, somehow I thought you might say that :)

A new flag seems like the only way then - maybe:
IBV_ACCESS_NON_COHERENT - The adaptor and the CPU do not share
a coherent view of registered memory. Memory writes from the CPU
after ibv_reg_mr completes may not be reflected in the memory
viewed by the adaptor.

Can only be combined with read only access permissions.
