  Patches: legion_run_multi

The updated command has different flags and slightly different usage. The new usage is:

legion_run_multi [-v] [-n <number of nodes>] 
	[-s <schedule file name>] -f <specification file name> 
	<program class name> [<arg1, arg2, ... argn>]
The -v option (verbose mode) is new. The -f file format now supports new options: it now distinguishes between upper and lower case flags in the specification file (i.e., -IN vs. -in, -OUT vs. -out). Those will now be propogated down to legion_run (please see the documentation for more information).

The -n flag refers to the number of nodes rather than the number of processors. If the remote program is a native parallel job (e.g., a program written to use the local vendor MPI implementation), use this option to specify the number of nodes that should be allocated to the job. This option is not meaningful if the host selected to run the remote program is a uniprocessor or does not support multi-node allocations.
