We're tracking it here (bug 12010 on our internal bugzilla), and it's on
my list to get done "soon". I'm currently in the middle of some other
bug fixes, but when I get to a good stopping point, I'll get this fixed.
Shouldn't be too difficult.

If you'd like to track it yourself, feel free to open an OpenFabrics
bug. I'll update the bug when I get a patch done.
