Actually, I think you are off by which commit undid the change. It was this one. And the message does suggest it might have caused problems.

    WARNING: Work on the temp branch being merged here encountered problems with bugs in subversion. Considerable effort has gone into validating the branch. However, not all conditions can be checked, so users are cautioned that it may be advisable to not update from the trunk for a few days to allow MTT to identify platform-specific issues.
   This merges the branch containing the revamped build system based around converting autogen from a bash script to a Perl program. Jeff has provided emails explaining the features contained in the change.
    Please note that configure requirements on components HAVE CHANGED. For example. a configure.params file is no longer required in each component directory. See Jeff's emails for an explanation.

Subject: [OMPI devel] Bull Vendor ID disappeared from IB ini file

Hi All,

I just realized that Bull Vendor IDs for Infiniband cards disappeared from
the trunk. Actually, they were removed shortly after we included them in
last September.

The original commit was :
r23715 | derbeyn | 2010-09-03 16:13:19 +0200 (Fri, 03 Sep 2010) | 1 line
Added Bull vendor id for ConnectX card

An here is the commit that undid Nadia's patch :
r23791 | swise | 2010-09-22 20:16:53 +0200 (Wed, 22 Sep 2010) | 2 lines
Add T4 device IDs to openib btl params ini file.

It does indeed add some T4 device IDs and removes our vendor ID. The other
thing that bugs me is that unlike the commit message suggests, this patch
does a lot more than adding T4 device ids. So, It looks like something
went wrong on this commit (something like : I forgot to update and forced
the commit) and it may be worth checking nothing else were reverted with
this commit ...
