When you say "as far as we've been able to figure out", I understand. It's
been a challenge to just find out what is and isn't supported.
I did find that bit of information, but haven't followed up on it:
Mellanex supports Infiniband Architecture in Oracle 10g. http://www.taborcommunications.com/dsstar/03/0923/106675.html

InfiniBand is fairly cheap. However, true IB for RAC (uDAPL) is not supported in 10gR2. As far as we've been able to figure out, the InfiniBand support is for SDP and is undocumented (that's for SQL*Net) and for interconnect traffic is only IPoIB - standard IP run over InfiniBand. Oracle has dropped plans to support uDAPL - apparently deciding to try to push their own proprietary RDMA protocol.
