I agree with Pasha that the reason you give for renaming openib btl
seem orthogonal to renaming the btl.

As far as I understand it is not reason to rename it. The OFED-lovin components should look at $with_openib.
Ah, sorry -- I didn't think this would be controversial.
Just curious: why do you hate it? OpenIB is a name that hasn't existed in years -- we already have to 'splain it.
I don't like the ofed name because isn't "ofed" the name of the
standards body and not the protocol being used? I'd be in favor of
renaming the btl ibverbs after the library the btl accesses.
However isn't this btl (and the underlying library) used with
networks other than IB?
Why not use a name that is commonly recognizable, like --with-ofed, or --with-of?
