Subject: [OMPI users] Enable PMI build
From: Brock Palen (brockp_at_[hidden])

We are looking at enabling the use of OpenMPI on our Xeon Phis,

One comment, i'm not sure that most users will know that pmi means phi,
  --with-pmi(=DIR) Build PMI support, optionally adding DIR to the
                          search path (default: no)

how about:
  --with-pmi(=DIR) Build PMI support for the Xeon Phi/MIC, optionally adding DIR to the
                          search path (default: no)

Second, digging in my mpss install I am not finding pmi.h or anything like that that searching the mailing list shows. We recently found that Intel made a lot of changes to the MPSS stack and this Phi stuff is very infantile at the moment so minimal (decent) documentation, does anyone know what current package provides PMI for the Xeon Phi?
