This will be true for all platforms w/ the ptl code - as it does no
buffering. The intel
tests are incorrect - in that they assume the implementation provides
some degree of
buffering (blocking sends are called before receive is posted).

The btl code will buffer up to a configurable eager limit - which I've
set by default
to be large enough to pass the intel tests.
