I've installed OpenStack Icehouse on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I see the following during openvswitch-datapath-dkms installation. I'm wondering if it can ignored?

Building module:
cleaning build area....(bad exit status: 2)
./configure --with-linux='/lib/modules/3.13.0-35-generic/build' && make -C datapath/linux......(b
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.13.0-35-generic (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/openvswitch/2.0.2/build/make.log for more information.

From above referenced log:

checking for kernel version... 3.13.11
configure: error: Linux kernel in /lib/modules/3.13.0-35-generic/build is version 3.13.11, but version newer than 3.12.x is not supported

I was able to resolve similar issue by upgrading the kernal and firmware to proper versions.

Upgrading kernel causes bnx2 failure after reboot. Did you source something which included fix or did you have to manually resolve? Assuming that you encountered this issue.

I have manually fixed it..

I tried different kernels and I keep encountering the error. What kernel version did you use? I can source the various required bnx2 files and add them.

The last kernel I tried was 3.12.27 as the error indicated version newer than 3.12 are unsupported.
