Just a heads up that the 3.10.0-862.11.6.el7.x86_64 kernel from RHEL/CentOS
that was released to address the most recent Intel CPU problem "L1TF" seems to
break RDMA (found by a colleague here at Swinburne). The discovery came
about when testing the new kernel on a system running Lustre.
Stanford have reported it to Red Hat, but the BZ entry is locked due to its
relationship with L1TF.
Hope this helps folks out there..
All the best,
