Hi Colin,

When we went to 64K pages we had to get a firmware upgrade for a myrinet card. As I recall it was already OK for 16K pages.
For mellanox cards we had to set a .ini parameter, log2_uar_bar_megabytes. Send 
me a note if you want more details.

Other than that, the drivers we tried just worked (qla24xxx, e1000, tg3, sata 
sil, sil24).
