The design of the rdma-core stuff was done with multi-arch in mind, I
believe the following should be OK:

Package: libibcm1
Package: libibcm1-dbg
Package: libibcm-dev
Package: libibumad3
Package: libibumad3-dbg
Package: libibumad-dev
Package: libibverbs1
Package: libibverbs1-dbg
Package: libibverbs-dev
Package: librdmacm1
Package: librdmacm1-dbg
Package: librdmacm-dev

We have no arch specific headers, provide no install scripts (aside
from what dh produces) and do not use .pc or .la files.

ibverbs-providers needs some fixing however..
