I've come to agree with Rolf and Nick that putting the buffer in
MPI_Wait is unnecessary.  The semantics of the ASYNCHRONOUS attribute
are quite clear:  It applies throughout the scoping unit, no matter
where references to the asynchronous object appear.

Putting the buffer in MPI_Wait wouldn't help anyway, unless we were to
do away with GO TO.
