Thanks, but it's not a problem building from source, and I want the
source to be able to do kernel upgrades.

The relevant info I was missing was that there was better module source
to use, but thanks anyhow.
In case it helps anyone else: openSuSE 10.3 (openSuSE generally?) isn't
supported in the infinitpath 2.2 distribution, and the modules
collection won't build directly with make-install.sh. I hacked
build-guards.sh to recognize the system as 2.6.22_FC6, since it has a
2.6.22.<something> kernel, and killed the code in
that duplicates stuff in the scsi_cmnd.h in the SuSE kernel sources.
(Although I only want the ib_ipath module, it was simplest just to make
that change.) Then it will build/install.
