    pamid: task 0 hang in MPI_Init() if MP_PRINTENV=yes
    In MPIDI_Print_mpenv(), when calling MPIR_Gather_impl to gather all MP environment variables
    from all tasks in a job, the errflag parameter was not initialized to 0 before it was
    passed to the routine:
           mpi_errno = MPIR_Gather_impl(&sender, sizeof(MPIDI_printenv_t), MPI_BYTE, gatherer,
                                        sizeof(MPIDI_printenv_t),MPI_BYTE, 0,comm_ptr,
                                        (int *) &errflag);
    To process the Gather collective call, each task issued MPIC_Recv, MPIC_Send and MPIC_Wait.
    MPIC_Send() sends a message with MPIR_GATHER_TAG (defined as 0x3). Since the routine had a
    non-zero errflag passed in,
        if (*errflag && MPIR_CVAR_ENABLE_COLL_FT_RET)
    the 30th bit of the tag was set to 1 :(1 << 30) (MPIR_TAG_ERROR_BIT). Therefore, the tag was
    changed from 0x3 to 0x40000003.
    On task 1, a message with this modified tag was sent to task 0. When the message arrived at
    task 0, the receive for the message with the original tag of 0x3 had been posted.
    However, the tag in the arrived message differed from the tag from the posted receive.
    So no match was found for the arrived message which was the root cause of the hang.
    MPIR_TAG_SET_ERROR_BIT was added for MPI 3.0 (pe rbrew and beyond) which explains why
    the job does not fail with prior releases.
