Has that Myrinet work appeared in a released version of the distro?  I'd
like to experiment with it, but I've been holding off because we have
Myrinet (and Myrinet is odd enough with it's resource sharing issues that I
doubt I'm able to hack on it myself).

I suppose we could always run TCP over it, but of course that has
significant performance drawbacks.
