I'm not too concerned about hwloc's performance in OMPI -- it'll be used during initialization only. Unless there's a dramatic difference for, say, large-core-count machines, I'd be inclined to just disable it unless there's some reason to leave it on. It's one less thing that a user will have to know/remember to --disable, even in Josh's exotic case.
