       This documentation is intended for internal Performance Co-Pilot
       (PCP) developer use.

DESCRIPTION         top

       The instance domain identified by lidp is sorted in ascending
       internal instance identifier value.  Both the lidp->instlist[]
       array and the corresponding lidp->namelist[] array are sorted.

       Since instance domains are usually sorted (at their source by a
       PMDA), a bubble sort is used.  This means that if the caller is
       unsure if the instance domain is sorted (but it actually is
       already sorted), then calling pmaSortInDom is as fast as checking
       if the instance domain is sorted, so when in doubt, simply call
