The patch was extracted from a ROMIO sources that come with MPICH2 1.0.6.

As noted on the ROMIO web page (

"Note: The version of ROMIO described on this page is an old one. We
haven't released newer versions of ROMIO as independent packages for a
while; they were included as part of MPICH2 and MPICH-1. You can get the
latest version of ROMIO when you download MPICH2 or MPICH-1."
