The specific tip here is that on Linux, you want to use the openib
BTL, not the udapl BTL. Specifying "--mca btl openib,sm,self" means
that Open MPI will use those 3 BTLs instead of attempting to auto-
select (apparently the auto-selection will include udapl).

Since you never want to use udapl on Linux, it's safe to entirely
remove it from the system:

   cd /where/you/installed/ompi
   cd lib/openmpi
   rm *udapl*

Then you won't need to include "--mca btl openib,sm,self" on the
command line any more.
