You can't do that with git.
But you can check out just the infiniband part of the tree:
git checkout master `git-ls-tree -r --name-only master \
                   include/rdma include/scsi/srp.h drivers/infiniband \
                   Documentation/infiniband ofed_scripts kernel_patches`
echo 'ref: refs/heads/master' > .git/HEAD
