InfiniBand hw support out of the box?

I think IB support in the generic kernel is unlikely any time soon, if 
ever, but building the kernel modules only takes a few minutes.  
Instructions are on the wiki in case you weren't aware:

You still have to do a buildworld to update your userland tools, 
though.  I've made the argument that the userland tools could and should 
be built with IB support now.  It adds a trivial number of files and 
only modifies a few binaries.

This would allow someone to get IB support running in minutes instead of 
hours, and would prevent freebsd-update from replacing ib-enabled files 
with generic ones.

All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers ... Each one owes
