I'm guessing to do that they'd need some form of RoCE (RDMA over
Converged Ethernet) support too, which I suspect needs switch
support (seems to from my limited involvement with a Mellanox
10/40/100 gigE cluster on campus).

I was going to download the driver to take a look here:


but there's a restrictive set of terms for it which seem GPL
incompatible to me, so I didn't proceed.

There's a little bit on the card here too (plus comments):


Best of luck!
