Yeah, I agree -- the current semantics aren't very useful anymore. I'd
actually like to just redefine the FAKE_RDMA flag's meaning. Some of the
BTLs assume that there will be one set of prepare_src / prepare_dst calls
for each put/get call. This won't work for one-sided RDMA, were we'll
call prepare_dst at window creation time and reuse it. I'd like to have
FAKE_RDMA set for those BTLs.
