Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] sm_coll segv
From: Lenny Verkhovsky (lenny.verkhovsky_at_[hidden])

Don't these allocations of bshe->smbhe_keys require some kind of memory
translation from 1 proc's memory space to another ( in bootstrap_init
function /ompi/mca/coll/sm/coll_sm_module.c )
If local rank0 allocates ( get attached to ) memory, others can't read it
without proper tranlsation.
