I Have installed an OFED stack on top of my distribution .
However now i need to compile a kernel module that rely on the kernel
ibverbs / rdma_cm module family.
However it seems that it cannot find the right module / header to
compile against ( its compiling again the header present in the
original Linux source) .
Based on what i understood the "backport " header are located in my ofa_kernel .
""""""""""""The package kernel-ib-devel include files are placed under
/usr/src/ofa_kernel/include/. These include files should be used when
building kernel modules that use the stack. (Note that the include
files, if needed, are “backported” to your kernel.) """"""
However i don't understand how to force the kernel module to compile
against them .
Can anybody can point me to the documentation that will help me
compile the kernel module?
