You would need to look in the IB spec.  Note that the status field is 16-bits and should be in big endian order.  Assuming, therefore, that the '3' falls into the upper bits of the status field, this would be an SA specific status value of ERR_NO_RECORDS.

You may need to back up and see what rdma_resolve_addr returns in the cases where rdma_resolve_route fails, and compare that with rdma_resolve_addr when rdma_resolve_route succeeds.  Maybe there's be a timing issue with the SA detecting the switch failure.  Can you tell if the RDS traffic is actually migrating to the new ports?
