Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] debugger changes

In theory, might a sufficiently smart compiler and linker eliminate some
MPIR_* variables after optimization? If that could potentially be true,
then perhaps the volatile qualifier would prevent such a removal, which
would break the existence check(s) by the debugger? Just a thought.
