It has been explained in a different thread on [ofa-general] that the
problem lies in a combination of the OpenIB-cma provider not setting the
local and remote port numbers on endpoints correctly and Open MPI
stepping over the IA to save the port number to circumvent this problem,
thereby confusing the provider.

I commented out line 197 in ompi/mca/btl/udapl/btl_udapl.c (Open MPI
1.2.1 release) and this fixes the problem. As the problem in the
provider is currently being fixed, the whole saving of the port number
in the uDAPL BTL code will be unnecessary in the future.
