Proxmox kernel is indeed a Red Hat kernel (Red Hat sources are publicly
I remember I was working on a similar IBM server for a project unrelated to
virtualization. Debian was giving bad performances while Red Hat/CentOS
were working as expected. Sadly I was in a hurry so I just used CentOS and
didn't have the chance to further investigate.
That said I think it is not a matter of drivers (modules version) but a
matter of default settings that can be controlled while loading the module
