I think it looks ok, meaning that I checked your changes.  I did not check to see if you missed any.

That being said, I'm not a fan of the MPI_INIT_THREAD C declaration -- it seems to just be more confusing than using ***.  Specifically, it's:

int MPI_Init_thread(int *argc, char *((*argv)[]), int required, int *provided)

Personally, I think *** is cleaner/easier to understand:

int MPI_Init_thread(int *argc, char ***argv, int required, int *provided)

I would advocate changing MPI_Init_thread to *** rather than changing MPI_Init to the complicated [] syntax.
