If that's the case, then there should be a NOTE: in the Kconfig that
disabling the connection manager completely disables iWARP hardware.

I don't really think I like this approach though. At a minimum if you
are going to make iWARP totally dependent on rdmacm, then there is zero
reason that iw_cm.o should be part of the obj-$(CONFIG_INFINIBAND)
Makefile recipe when ADDR_TRANS is disabled.

We can take this patch as a band-aid, but IMO it's either incomplete or
simply not the right solution.
