Perhaps you could give us a reference to the real definition of SALC
then ?

Google shows up a selection of _different_ versions of the acronym

       Shared Address Local Copy
       Shared Address Local Cache
and you used
       Shared Address Local Consistency

Since the "Shared Address Local Copy" is in a paper by Bob Numrich, I
think this is likely the right one ?

If we can't even agree what the acronym stands for it's a bit hard to
decide what it means :-(
