Hi folks,

I have run into a problem with mca_mpool_rdma_finalize as implemented in
r15557. With the t_win onesided test, running over gm, it segfaults. What
appears to be happening is that some memory is registered with gm, and then
gets freed by mca_mpool_rdma_finalize. But the free function that it is using
is in the gm btl, and the btls are unloaded before the mpool is shut down. So
the function call segfaults.

If I change the code so we never unload the btls (and we don't free the gm
port), it works fine.

Note that the openib btl works just fine.

Forgive me if this is a known problem, I am trying to catch up from my


If anyone cares, here is the callstack:
(gdb) bt
#0  0x404de825 in ?? () from /lib/
#1  0x4048081a in mca_mpool_rdma_finalize (mpool=0x925b690)

#5  0x08049946 in main (argc=1, argv=0xbfe16924) at t_win.c:214
gdb shows that at this point the gm btl is no longer loaded.
