Oh, there's no reason to decide this up front: as I learned hosting a clone of a
git tree is *really* trivial. For example, we can arrange to host a clone of
your tree at mellanox.co.il if you like, and let you push there. And its also
trivial to clone and switch to another location whenever you like.

You mean a head there, like for-ofed-1.1? Why not. But it does mean you'll need
Roland to apply your patches to his tree.

It is probably best to take whatever is needed in OFED and have a branch
with these things, separate from for-2.6.19.
