IN order to run a program on PHI:
Please take into account that a minimal set of libraries is available on the mic.
Please take into account that you need to inlcude the flag -DNO_DEFAULT_MAPPING when compiling FastFlow programs, as the default mapping at the moment assumes a core numbering such as the one used for Sandy/Ivy Bridge (0 first context of the first core, 1 first context of the second core …) processors, which is different from the one used on PHI (0 first context of the first core, 1 second context of the first core …).
You can use both the accelerators available on the machine (namely MIC0 and MIC1), despite the fact the examples in this page alway use mic0 …
