Are you still doing that Microsoft Windows NVMe fabric host, Linux
kernel target solution?

I'd try to see if you can get the mlx5_1 driver working on a Linux NVMe
Host, Linux NVMe Target solution first.

Or alternatively use a RoCE v1 NIC+driver on the Windows NVMe fabric
host and Linux target.

My concern would be since RoCE v2 is rather new'ish (first appeared in
Linux kernel roughly 4.5), there is some interpretation/implementation
difference between the two OS's.

But to answer your question, if you are interested in stable
latest+greatest, kernel.org has 4.8.3.  If you want a bit more bleeding
edge, try the mainline kernel at 4.9-rc1 at kernel.org.
