RHEL ships ENA and EFA drivers.  Are these the same drivers you're
referring to?  If not, can you describe how they're different?

I ask because if RHEL ships a driver then Stream will ship the same
driver directly.  It wouldn't make much sense to have them in a SIG
unless they were somehow different, and even then there would be
interesting issues to work out around conflicting drivers.
