I didn't check everything in detail, but at least I didn't see anything
totally wrong :)

Minor comments:
* do you really need to check if ptr != NULL before freeing ptr ? my
free accepts NULL ptr
* I would rather assert(0) when type is OBJ_TYPE_MAX in switches
* note that backporting to 1.1 would conflict in the distance stuff
(some code was moved from src/topology.c to distance.c, and types were
changed from unsigned to float)

What's your plan now? Apply this to hwloc trunk, don't backport in hwloc
1.1, but backport to OMPI's copy of hwloc 1.1 to get some wide testing?
