IPoIB doesn't register the IPv6 addresses with the SA. In fact, I'm not sure it supports IPv6 properly - shouldn't there be some packet filtering/snooping to get the MAC to GID mappings from the neighbor discovery protocol?
Is there a dependency on ATS for IPv4 in uDAPL on Windows? If not, this is probably not an issue for DAPL at this point (or at least it doesn't break anything that isn't already broken.)
