Currently the patch is broken and incorrectly sets the CM timeouts to 21 ms,
which causes failures on any (even small) scale-up testing. The OFED 1.1 patch
was more limited in scope and only affected MRA timeouts, whereas, this patch
affects all CM timeouts. I thought the SRP target issue was fixed with a
firmware update, and I saw that Ishai was re-working the timeout patch. Until a
fixed patch is ready, I believe that we should remove this.

I ran a command based on what you mentioned:
env git_url=/home/shefty/src/ofed_1_2/ git_branch=ofed_1_2 CHECK_LOCAL=yes
The build for x686 works, but all other builds fail, so I removed the
CHECK_CROSS=yes option. I get build errors related to the cxgb3 driver.
