Hi Jerome,

I took this branch and merged with our latest rdma-next, but it doesn't

In file included from drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx5/mem.c:35:
./include/rdma/ib_umem_odp.h:110:20: error: field _mirror_ has
incomplete type
struct hmm_mirror mirror;
./include/rdma/ib_umem_odp.h:132:18: warning: _struct hmm_range_ declared inside parameter list will not be visible outside of this definition or declaration
struct hmm_range *range);
make[4]: *** [scripts/ drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx5/mem.o] Error 1

The reason to it that in my .config, ZONE_DEVICE, MEMORY_HOTPLUG and HMM options were disabled.
