Does MLNX_OFED also support FreeBSD?

We want to implement IO virtualization over InfiniBand, For this we need to have following system requirement:

• MLNX_OFED Driver

• A server/blade with an SR-IOV-capable motherboard BIOS

• Hypervisor that supports SR-IOV such as: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Version 6.*

• Mellanox ConnectX® VPI Adapter Card family with SR-IOV capability

As per our finding currently Mellanox supports following OS:

RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu, SLES, OLE, Citrix, Fedora and Debian. Does MLNX_OFED also support FreeBSD? As we need to implement the same on FreeBSD.

There should be an ethernet driver v2.1 for FreeBSD (the IB is inbox AFAIK).

As a general thought, there is a FreeBSD Infiniband mailing list which may also be useful:
