bmi-design.tex has this paragraph:
"BMI provides reliability, message ordering, and flow control. If a particular underlying protocol does not provide one of these features, then BMI is responsible for implementing it."
Does BMI actually provide flow control? Does it rely on the method to provide flow control? If so, I don't think I did anything with bmi_mx other than rely on MX's flow control.
Or does Flow (or another upper layer protocol) provide flow control?
