Error starting IB HCA while Linux Boot

I have installed the Xen+IB source from the xen-smartio repository.
I have a problem in getting the IB hardware to start. here is the
output of the dmesg:
ib_mthca: Mellanox InfiniBand HCA driver v0.06 (June 23, 2005)
ib_mthca: Initializing 0000:02:00.0
ib_mthca 0000:02:00.0: SYS_EN DDR error: syn=4, sock=0, sladdr=0, SPD
ib_mthca 0000:02:00.0: SYS_EN returned status 0x07, aborting.
ib_mthca: probe of 0000:02:00.0 failed with error -22

The hardware is failing during the Linux/xen0 boot

The IB hardware as shown by the lspci command is as follows:
02:00.0 InfiniBand: Mellanox Technologies MT25208 InfiniHost III Ex
(Tavor compatibility mode) (rev a0)

Any reasons why the hardware fails to start and is there any solution for this?
