Hi, Iain

Can you please check whether the OFED has been installed with '--upstream-libs 
--dpdk' options? I mean,
        ./mlnxofedinstall --upstream-libs --dpdk
It is documented in "21.7. Quick Start Guide on OFED".
Since 17.11, we started to support upstream libraries (rdma-core in linux 
community).

Thanks,
Yongseok
