The current design makes it impossible to support more than one mpool in a btl. I can delete a bunch of code if I can make a btl fall back on the rdma mpool if leave_pinned is not set.

Because if I include mpool_rdma.h and mpool_grdma.h (or mpool_sm.h) from the same file we get a name collision since all mpool components define mca_mpool_base_resources_t.
