We (Mellanox) already did that in FreeBSD-10.0.
You can go to sys/modules and compile + kldload the following modules (in that specific order): mlx4, ibcore, mlx4ib, ipoib.

We are planning on refining it and break ib_core into smaller modules (ib_sa, ib_mad...) on our next commit.

Subject: Kernel module?

Does anyone know if are any plans for converting the IB stack to a loadable kernel module?  At present, freebsd-update will remove IB support if it updates the kernel, making it necessary to do another buildkernel following the updates.

Certain other updates might necessitate a buildworld as well, which would also be nice to eliminate.
