1.22.1. RHBA-2011:0371: dapl bug fix update

Updated dapl packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The dapl package provides a user-space implementation of the DAT 2.0 API that allows applications to utilize high-performance network technologies such as InfiniBand and iWARP.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Due to an invalid error mapping, when dapl received a signal during the execution of the dapls_evd_dto_wait() function, it could fail to set the correct error type, which may have led to an incorrect operation. With this update, the relevant part of the source code has been modified to return the correct value, and dapl now works as expected. (BZ#660256)
All users of dapl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
