    Invalid module format when loading ib_* (RHEL 6.4)

      I installed RHEL 6.4 and upgraded.  The current kernel is 2.6.32-358.11.1.  Thus I also updated MLNX_OFED_LINUX-2.0-2.0.5-rhel6.4-x86_64.iso with mlnx_add_kernel_support.sh.

       

      My command line is:

      /mnt/mlnx_add_kernel_support.sh -m /mnt --make-iso

       

      I installed with mlnxofedinstall after creating new iso image.

       

      However, hca_self_test.ofed issues error at Host Driver Initialization phase. 

      # cat /tmp/hca_self_test_modprobe.output

      What am I wrong and how can I resolve this error?
