Subject: [OMPI users] cleanup of round robin mappers

Hi Ralph,

I tried to improve checking for mapping-too-low and fixed a minor
problem in rmaps_rr.c file. Please see attached patch file.

1) Regarding mapping-too-low, in future we'll have a lager size of
l1,2,3cache or other architectuers, and in that case, the needs to
map by a lower object level will increase. So, it's better/exact to
compare cpus_per_rank with ncpus of the mapping object in detecting
it. How do you think?

2) When orte_rmaps_rr_byobj returns with ORTE_ERR_NOT_FOUND,
we should change mapping policy to ORTE_MAPPING_BYSLOT
so that binding direction can be exactly evaluated in
rmaps_base_binding.c file.
