I am setting up a Poweredge R720 server with a Broadcom BCM57810 10 Gbit
NIC however the SFP adapters that we have appear to be incompatible.

Is there an updated version of the bnx2x driver available for CentOS
7.3?  Would it be possible to update the kernel module to work with
different SFP adapters?  I am willing to patch the kernel source if needed.
