Updated compat-dapl packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The DAT programming API provides a means of utilizing high performance network technologies, such as InfiniBand and iWARP, without needing to write your program to use those technologies directly. This package contains the libraries that implement version 1.2 of the DAT API. The current (and recommended version for any new code) is 2.0. These 1.2 libraries are provided solely for backward compatibility.
Under certain error conditions, an error in the code path in compat-dapl did not allow the cp_ptr entry to be cleaned up correctly in the internal link list. This could cause new connections to fail. This update includes a backported fix from uDAPL 2.0 which ensures the entry is cleaned up correctly and subsequent connections work as expected.
Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
