patch that teaches ifconfig about infiniband
Looks interesting. I will check it closer, just there's one think. I
don't know what the current status of if_infiniband.h glibc kernel
module. Seems that it's still not included there.
That is true, if_infiniband.h is in 2.6.11-rc right now. If you want
me to open another bug to put that header in glibc-kernheaders and
make this dependent on that one, I can do that.
But, the only real thing you need to pick up from that is:
#define INFINIBAND_ALEN 20
which you could define in ib.c (in the ifconfig package) until such a
time as it is available in the headers.
Some how I fat fingered benl off of the qa contact on the bug.
Ok, I've changed the patch and included it in net-tools-1.60-45. I
hope this works cos I don't have access to appropriate hardware ;)
Would be great to have here a kind of confirmation that it works fine ..
Opening feature request for if_infiniband.h in glibc-kernheaders is
IMHO good idea.
I tested this version and it is working as intended. Thanks.
