[Beowulf] HPL efficiency on Magny-Cours and Westmere?

We achieved ~87% on HPL across 3072 cores (256 nodes) with QDR IB and 2GB/core. 
  If I remember correctly, we got about 91% on a single node (across 12 cores).
We didn't run single-socket tests.

This is on an IBM iDataPlex with 2.8GHz X5660 Westmeres.
