Re: Bug#895193: transition: openmpi

As of 3.0.1, openmpi now works on Big-Endian powerpc (which was to be a
problem; it had been dropped upstream because of an unknown bug, now fixed).

The other non-release archs were failing due to missing dependencies: in
particular java support (not used by any package in stable/testing) and
pmix (new; not used in testing/stable; pmix enables scaling to ~100,000+
nodes, which is unlikely to be needed).

So, the expected changes to mpi-defaults will no longer be needed.
