Subject: [OMPI devel] thread safety of the self btl
From: Christopher Yeoh (cyeoh_at_[hidden])

I've noticed that the self btl does not do any locking. It has one
lock defined but its not actually used anywhere.

So I'm just wondering if that is an oversight or if there is a reason
that we know for sure that there will never be concurrent access
to that particular btl with threads enabled?
