I believe this HPC Gold CD is a tested version of the Linux 'OpenIB.org'
drivers which have been tested by Mellanox. Unfortunately this is all I
know currently about these OpenIB drivers as I've only used the products
from TopSpin (who is a customer of Mellanox.. as they I believe are now
the sole IB Silicon provider) in the past.
