The CM PML only support networks that do matching in hardware. In
Open MPI temrs, the CM PML require one of the MTL (instead of the BTL
for all others PML). For a full list of supported networks, one can
list the content of the ompi/mca/mtl directory (right now: Myrinet,
Portals and QSLogic).

If your environment do not dispose of any of these networks, then CM
cannot be used. Moreover, as you force the PML to CM on the command
line, as CM fails to load, Open MPI give up claiming that no PML were
