Title: BNX2 v1.7.1d-1 with Red Hat 5.2 Fails to Install

Following the trail some more….


LINUX_VERSION_CODE is defined in /usr/include/linux/version.h


==== begin cut here =====

#define LINUX_VERSION_CODE 132626

#define KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) (((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))

#define RHEL_MAJOR 5

#define RHEL_MINOR 2

#define RHEL_RELEASE_CODE 1282

#define RHEL_RELEASE_VERSION(a,b) (((a) << 8) + (b))

====== end cut here =========


If you convert 132626 to Hex, then the value is 0x020612.  This is less than 0x020616 and hence why the bnx2 compile is falling into the IF statement.


I guess I am going to have to contact HP support and have them duke it out with Red Hat to determine if the kernel-devel change between 5.1 and 5.2 is wrong or if the bnx2 header file is wrong.

Upon further investigation, I am seeing changes in the kernel-devel-2.6.18-92 package (compared to 2.6.18-55 version) to introduce one of the parameters, skb_transport_offset.  From the bnx2 source, I see the parameters that failed listed in bnx2.h file in the below IF statement.   What I don’t understand, due mainly to being new at this, is why the IF statement is not working and dropping the bnx compiler into setting these parameters.  My assumption is that the LINUX_VERSION_CODE variable for kernel 2.6.18-92 is 0x020618 which should be greater than 0x020616.


======== begin cut bnx2.h ===========


#if (LINUX_VERSION_CODE < 0x020616)

static inline int skb_transport_offset(const struct sk_buff *skb)


        return (int) (skb->h.raw - skb->data);



static inline struct iphdr *ip_hdr(const struct sk_buff *skb)


        return skb->nh.iph;



static inline unsigned int ip_hdrlen(const struct sk_buff *skb)


        return ip_hdr(skb)->ihl * 4;



static inline struct tcphdr *tcp_hdr(const struct sk_buff *skb)


        return skb->;



static inline unsigned int tcp_optlen(const struct sk_buff *skb)


        return (tcp_hdr(skb)->doff - 5) * 4;





===============end cut here bnx2.h =====================

Looking to see if anyone has ran into this issue before I contact HP Support.

I am working on getting Red Hat 5.2 (kernel 2.6.18-92.el5) installed on a HP BL460c blade and ran into an issue with the installation of the HP PSP 8.0.  In particular, I cannot install the BNX2 driver due to what appears to be duplicated definitions within the build files.  I have tried to download the latest BNX2 driver (1.7.1d.3-1) from HP support web site and it has the same issue when I manually attempt to install it.

Searching Google did not turn up any solutions but I did have a hit on a Dell list server of a similar issue:

Reviewing the header files, I do see duplicates in the bnx2.h and the kernel source headers for the variables mentioned below.

I am guessing that some definitions were moved into the kernel headers and not eliminated from the BNX2 headers or vice versa.  I do not have this issue with Red Hat 5.1
