Ahhh.  This is a new requirement then with OFED 1.5?  Previous OFED
releases (i.e. 1.4) supported ISER on most (all?) supported (i.e.
RHEL/SLES vendor) kernels didn't it?

Is this something that's expected to be remedied before the GA release,
or has a decision been made to officially not support ISER for $kernel <
2.6.30 with OFED 1.5?
