To followup for the web archives -- we discussed this more off-list.
AFAIK, compiling Open MPI -- including its memory registration cache
-- works fine in 32 bit mode, even on 64 bit platforms (there was some
confusion between virtual and physical memory addresses and who uses
what [OMPI *only* sees virtual memory addresses because it's user-
