Again, these changesets are >5 years old and have not been looked at or
maintained since -- I am very sceptical that you will find anything of
use on a modern Xen system in there.

I expect that IB support in the kernels we currently use for dom0 is
vastly improved over what was available in the 2.6.16 tree referenced in
the above repository. Perhaps you don't even need anything special
outside of what is available in the upstream dom0 kernel.

Perhaps if you explain what you are actually trying to achieve then
people will be able to better advise you?
