That is because OFED 1.4.1 is based upon kernel 2.6.27 -- and the patch you mention
only entered kernel 2.6.28.
OFED 1.5 (coming out in a couple of months) is in development now, and will be based on
kernel 2.6.30 and does contain this patch -- and all others that were committed to the
kernel up to then (we take the mainstream kernel tree as-is, and adapt/delete the various
patches and backport fixes from previous OFEDs; that way the infiniband drivers always
contain all fixes which were applied to the kernel version on which the OFED release is based).
