Test program

Description of problem:
There seems to be a bug in dsyevr function in lapack that ships with RHEL6 but does not appear in 3.5.0 lapack (and therefore also in atlas so atlas would need a rebuild as well) - it's described at http://icl.cs.utk.edu/lapack-forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4767 but I'll copy all of that here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile attached program (gfortran test.f90 -llapack)
2. Run it, it will wait for input - give it:
  4.0233725957917259288124166e-07  1.1475559753759016807209544e-22  3.1797364433177036979501603e-68 
  1.1475559753759016807209544e-22  4.0233725957917259288124166e-07 -7.5079600860804907344589960e-56 
  3.1797364433177036979501603e-68 -7.5079600860804907344589960e-56  4.3213250161962713132013381e-05

Actual results:
In the output you will see
dsyevr: info =   1
which, I am told, should not be there and indeed it is not with newer lapack, openblas or Intel's MKL.

Expected results:
No dsyevr: info =   1
