Alas, it doesn't compile (patch was applied to OpenMPI 1.2.5):

mtl_psm.c(109): error: struct "orte_proc_info_t" has no field "num_local_procs"
      if (orte_process_info.num_local_procs > 0) {

mtl_psm.c(111): error: struct "orte_proc_info_t" has no field "num_local_procs"
         snprintf(buf, sizeof buf - 1, "%d", orte_process_info.num_local_procs);

mtl_psm.c(113): error: struct "orte_proc_info_t" has no field "local_rank"
         snprintf(buf, sizeof buf - 1, "%d", orte_process_info.local_rank);

compilation aborted for mtl_psm.c (code 2)

Attached. It seems it does try to enable context sharing but for some
reason /dev/ipath still returns a busy code.
