How reproducible:

Very.

Steps to Reproduce:

2. Install Infiniband card
3. Try to load the ib_ipath module
  
Actual results:

# modprobe ib_ipath
FATAL: Module ib_ipath not found.


Expected results:

I expect the module to be present and load.

CONFIG_INFINIBAND_IPATH=m

The ipath module is not expected, nor required, to run on ia32 hardware.  It is
an ia64 hardware only module.
