Fun. So apparently, the hpn-ssh folks have been trying to get this into
upstream openssh for about 3 years now, and always get put off by
openssh folks being "too busy to validate such a big patch". However,
I've been assured the code has been vetted by multiple 3rd-parties, and
gets heavily utilized in the high-performance networking community, and
has been without any incompatibilities w/stock openssh or serious bug
reports in over a year.

Personally, I'd say lets add it to rawhide and see how it goes... Anyone
else have an opinion? Adding Tomas to the cc list, since he maintains
our openssh packages, to solicit his opinion as well...
