Err.. I'm confused. These are two unrelated things.

I.e., there's no reason to think that OOB and MPI transport/protocol types are related. Indeed, we've been using TCP OOB and Verbs MPI transport/protocols for years.

I'll know within the next month or three as to whether I'm interested in BTL ofud.

Why? OpenFabrics support is what both openib and ud (and hwloc and ofud) are all looking for. The name "OpenIB" has been defunct for *YEARS*.
