Subject: [OMPI devel] How to return a run-time error to the PML?

Oh PML wizards...

What's the Right way to return an error to the PML indicating that
something Bad happened?

I'm asking specifically for the connection schemes of the openib BTL
-- if an error occurs (which, due to lazy connections, may be long
after MPI_INIT), what's the Right way to notify the PML that a
connection failed?
