Have you tried using the currently existing Mellanox drivers (1.8.2.x) on ESXi 6.5?
No, I don't want it.
I want to install public release driver that include infiniband storage driver, too.
Well, if Connect-X3 is not supported by the new drivers, we won't have much of a choice but try these old drivers with ESXi 6.5...

I'm tried PVRDMA, but there were some issues.
You can find it on vSphere 6.5 release note.
I think this is very curious.
I heard some information that Mellanox co-work with VMware to support RDMA, vRDMA on ESXi hypervisor last several years.
But almost strong feature was gone to somewhere...:(
My tiny labs switched dual SX6036G ethernet based infrastructure, but not RDMA.
I can't trust Mellanox's driver support & PB anymore.
I'll change ethernet fabric switch from other vendor then all of our SX6036G going to trash bin.
Good bye Mellanox.
