Hi Nasser,

this is the right forum for the discussing the particulars of the debian
OFED packages.

There is a bug in the ofa-kernel-source package, which was causing the
ib_ipath module not to be rebuilt, so you have ended up with a mixture
of old and new kernel modules.

I have now fixed the bug; if you download the new ofa-kernel-source
package (ofa-kernel-source_1.4-3_all.deb)

and rebuild the kernel modules:

 module-assistant prepare
 module-assistant clean ofa-kernel
 module-assistant build-ofa-kernel

You will have to rmmod the existing infiniband modules or reboot the
machine before you can use the new modules.

You can check that the right one is being used by running
modinfo ib_ipath.

You should pick up the modules from:
