[mpich-discuss] ROMIO: Patch to run on Lustre

I get an error when I run ROMIO on Lustre with a high number of stripes 
and processes.

This is due to the call to ioctl(fd->fd_sys, LL_IOC_LOV_GETSTRIPE, (void 
*)lum) that
return -1 with errno pointing to " Value too large for defined data type".
In that case, fd->hints->striping_factor is not initialize. That could 
produce a "Floating point exception"
"Integer divide-by-zero" in ADIOI_LUSTRE_Get_striping_info().

After initializing lum->lmm_stripe_count to a "correct value", this 
problem disappears.
I think this is a Lustre bug, but I propose to integer this patch:
