This patch does not apply to the tree.

In fact, there is no reference at all to num_comp_vectors
in the mlx4_en driver at all.  The code there currently reads:

		if (!mdev->[i].rx_ring_num) {
			mdev->[i].rx_ring_num = 1;
			mlx4_info(mdev, "Defaulting to %d rx rings for port:%d\n",
				  1, i);

So there is some other patch applied to your copy of the driver
already that adds all of that num_comp_vectors stuff.  It isn't
in the upstream sources, and it certainly isn't in the networking
development GIT tree(s), that is for sure.

Please, please (did I say please?), please be more careful
in the future and don't send patches that do not apply properly
to the tree.  This wastes a lot of my time and discourages my
handling your patches efficiently in the future.
