Hello Curtis,
yes, done with ompi-trunk:
Apart from --enable-mpi-threads --enable-progress-threads, You need to compile
Open MPI with --enable-mca-no-build=memory-ptmalloc2 ; and of course the
usual options for debugging (--enable-debug) and the options for
CFLAGS='-debug all -inline-debug-info -tcheck'
CXXFLAGS='-debug all -inline-debug-info -tcheck'
FFLAGS='-debug all -tcheck'

Then, as You already noted, run the application with --mca btl tcp,sm,self:
mpirun --mca tcp,sm,self -np 2 \
     tcheck_cl \
       --reinstrument \
       -u all \
       -c \
       -d '/tmp/hpcraink_$$__tc_cl_cache' \
       -f html \
       -o 'tc_mpi_test_suite_$$.html' \
       -p 'file=tc_mpi_test_suite_%H_%I, \
           pad=128, \
           delay=2, \
           stall=2' \
       -- \
      ./mpi_test_suite -j 2 -r FULL -t 'Ring Ibsend' -d MPI_INT

-- the reinstrument is not really necessary, also setting the padding and
delay for startup of threads; shortenign the delay for stalls to 2 seconds
alos does not trigger any deadlocks.

This was with icc-9.1 and itt-3.0 23205.

Hope this helps,
