Well, I do care - but I couldn't find where the trans->cancelled member
function was supposed to be called anyway...
So adding it to the struct and fixing the warning is well and fine, but
if it's still never called in the end I don't see much point and there's
nothing to test.

It's on my loooong todo list of things to look at, but as no other reply
came and the patch was never picked up it kind of dropped in priority.
I'll have another look next week

I guess the worst that could happen would be submitting the
rdma_cancelled function again when this is sorted out :)
