Post subject:  Driver not cliaming any devices

I've been working on getting the NVME driver compiled and working on ESXi 5.x

The driver is released here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/nvmevm ... ver/files/

The driver compiles fine and loads successfully. But vmkernel log shows it claims 0 devices.

I've created a nvme.map file in /etc/vmware/driver.map.d with the proper device id as reported by lspci -v

I emailed back an forth with the driver maintainer on source forge and he provided some tips but nothing that helped. I did modify the source file nvme_module.c with the deviceid s well (sourceforge maintainer said this wasnt required).

Any thoughts? Is the map file the only thing that tells a driver to claim it?
