How about using the approach documented on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/BuildingKernelModules (weak updates) and taking the risk that the IB drivers may break if an update introduces an RDMA ABI change ?

The "take a risk X might break" bit doesn't really sound suitable
for the CentOS audience.

That being said... how often does the RDMA ABI change?  If it's
once every X years, then it might be live-able (with sufficient
catches/warning so users aren't affected).
