Or Gerlitz - Aug. 1, 2012, 5:09 p.m.
From: Erez Shitrit <erezsh@mellanox.co.il>

Guest IP packets sent by eIPoIB over an IPoIB VIF interface do not point
to dst or neighbour. This patch modifies IPoIB such that trasnmission
of such packets is possible. It does so by extending an already existing
path in the driver which was used so far only for unicast ARP probes.

This patch was made such that the series works as is over net-next, in
parallel to this driver a patch to modify IPoIB such that it doesn't
assume dst/neighbour on the skb was pushed upstream, its commit b63b70d87741 
"IPoIB: Use a private hash table for path lookup in xmit path", once
present in net-next this patch can simply be dropped.
