Yes, this is the problem.
The active side clearly cannot learn what the SLID of the passive
side's router should be.
We don't want to have the routers snoop and alter CM GMPs.
The passive side cannot use information from the LRH to get the router
LID since the LRH may not be reversible.
The only option seems to be to have the passive side do a path record
query on a SGID in the CM REQ...
