Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] r26255 has made openib unusable on Solaris platforms
From: TERRY DONTJE (terry.dontje_at_[hidden])

I am thinking MEMORY_LINUX_PTMALLOC2 is probably the right define to key
off of but this is really going to look gross ifdef'ing out the lines
that are accessing the Linux memory module. One other idea I have is to
create a dummy __malloc_hook in the Solaris memory module but might
there be other OSes that could run into the same problem? Or what
happens if PTMALLOC2 is not used (does that happen)?
