libibverbs has been removed from meta-virtualization but it is still required
by librdmacm and glusterfs. So add it back from meta-virtualization.
My bad, I can revert the drop in meta-virtualization to keep the churn
to a minimum.

We should look into replacing this recipe with rdma-core (which was on
my list, but I didn't want to do that replacement this late in the
I check the file of librdmacm and no configure option for rdma-core. That's why add it back.

And revert is better.


As is obvious from the page:, there won't be any more
releases of this package, and we are going to eventually run into
trouble maintaining it.
