This post is basically a bug report as I have no access to Premier Support. My OpenMPI 1.8.4 on Mac OS X 10.10.1 (Yosemite) build results in a dylib which crashes certain programs even though it passes all of its own tests. I wasn't able to diagnose the optimised build so I was trying to build an unoptimised copy, but the compiler then crashes. The compiler version is:
icpc version 15.0.1 (gcc version 4.9.0 compatibility)
I've pinned down the problematic compiler invocation to the following:
This causes mcpcom to crash after a few seconds. The key point is that dropping any one of the three compiler flags (`-O0` or `-xAVX` or `-fp-model strict`) makes the problem go away. The error message starts with:
Proton IL Dump - Routine not allocatable
Routine __Z12handle_leavePvyjjjP23OTF_KeyValueList_struct EFI2
This is followed by a large amount of error dump, which can be found here.
The full preprocessed C++ source can be found here.
I've since managed to tweak some things and OpenMPI now works, so this is not urgent. However I reckon this should be properly looked at and fixed.
