I do not see a libibumad tarball there, I did find OFED-1.4.tgz which contained
a SRPM for it... if this is the only way upstream distributes these libraries,
please suggest to them that it is better if they publish normal tarballs.

I have absolutely no clue what this does, except that it has something to do
with InfiniBand. What is MAD? What is OpenSM? What functionality does this
library provide? Also drop "OpenFabrics Alliance" from the short description.
If you want to mention it, do it in the long description.
