EFA 1.5.0 has been tagged in the open source GitHub repository:


Test kernels were created from these pull requests and each has passed automated

The 1.5.0 release contains fixes for expressing a module dependency on ib_uverbs
for earlier releases such as Xenial & Bionic, as well as a driver ID being back-
ported so that EFA can be interacted with properly with ioctl.

Please note that Eoan's pull request is different in that I first ported EFA
1.4.0 to it, and then layered the commits on top of it from the GitHub repo to
effectively "fastforward" it to 1.5.0.
