mlx5_ib issue while installing MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.1- to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with HWE kernel.

Hi, we encounter a mlx5_ib issue while we are installing MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.1- to our Ubuntu 16.04 LTS OS with HWE kernel (4.15.0-140-generic).

The MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.1- driver seems to be the newest we could install according to the support matrix because we are using a Dell Mellanox ConnectX-5 NIC with firmware version There is no newer firmware available from Dell at this time and we cannot use firmware from the Mellanox site because the Dell NIC has a “DE” PSID.

I have attached the log files and the output.
