I only used ofed1.1 with some of the tests (those with orig centos5
kernels) and saw the problem with both ofed1.1 and ofed1.2.

but thanks - I'll definitely stick to just ofed1.2 from now on.

I'm using centos5 == rhel5.

the ofed1.2 userland I'm using is from here:
and I've tried kernel.org and also RedHat's ofed1.2 kernels:

the changelog in the userland .src.rpm says:
  * Wed Jun 27 2007 Doug Ledford <dledford at redhat.com> 1.2-1
  - Update to final OFED 1.2 release

so hopefully that is a recent enough OFED?
