Bug description:
  ---Problem Description---
  While installing Ubuntu 15.04 LE in powerNV system, I see the following error:

  ---Additional Hardware Info---
  Mellanox device which seems to be causing the error:
  0000:01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Mellanox Technologies MT26448 [ConnectX EN 10GigE, PCIe 2.0 5GT/s] (rev b0)

  Machine Type = 8286-42A PowerNV 
  ---Steps to Reproduce---
  1. Start install of Ubuntu 15.04 LE
  2. Installer does not start at all. We see the error
  Install ISO Information: Ubuntu 15.04 - vivid-server-ppc64el.iso
  Install method: DVD
  Install disk info: # ethtool -i  eth17                
  driver: mlx4_en
  version: 2.2-1 (Feb 2014)
  firmware-version: 2.9.1326
  bus-info: 0000:01:00.0
  supports-statistics: yes
  supports-test: yes
  supports-eeprom-access: no
  supports-register-dump: no
  supports-priv-flags: yes
  The issue is that we are not getting interrupts. 

  I forced to install Mellanox OFED in my virtual guest with ubuntu
  15.04 and I do not see the issue with that code so I will try to look
  tonight for differences between that code and upstream to see if I can
  spot the issue.

  The problem is related to the following commit:


  They forgot to set the page size for UAR to adapter so that is why is
  not working. So any kernel for power that gets that patch in mlx5 will
  see this issue.
