I've run the whole IMB Benchmark Suite on 2, 3, and 4 nodes with 2
processes per node and --mca btl udapl,self. I didn't encouter any problems.

The comment above line 197 says that dat_ep_query() returns wrong port
numbers (which it does indeed), but I can't find any call to
dat_ep_query() in the uDAPL BTL code. Maybe the comment is out of date?
