Dear users of infiniband in FreeBSD:
Mellanox is working on a big infiniband update towards mellanox OFED
v3.2 of the infiniband stack (ibcore), drivers (mlx4/mlx5) and libraries
(librdma, libibverbs ...). Currently there are 10-patches in different
areas of the FreeBSD kernel and userspace which you need to apply to
11-current as of today to get a working GENERIC kernel.
Compile world and kernel like this after applying the patches below:
make buildkernel WITH_OFED=YES
make buildworld WITH_OFED=YES
The patches are work in progress, though at a level where basic
infiniband is working with MLX5.
- LINT build is broken (Will be fixed before committing. Waiting for
solution from Navdeep)
- Need to unload ipoib before mlx5ib.
