FWIW, my manual tests of a simplistic "ring" program work for all
combinations (openib, openib+self, openib+self+sm). Shrug.
But for OSU latency, I found that openib, openib+sm work, but openib+sm
+self hangs (same results whether the 2 procs are on the same node or
different nodes). There is no self communication in osu_latency, so
something else must be going on.
