A good thing with this earlier fmt_init() is in case a format caps the 
max OMP num threads (not sure if any format does that currently, but it 
does make sense in some cases), it will be reflected in the benchmark 
output, the (nxOMP). This can avoid some confusion.

By the way, I guess if a format does that, the capped value will remain 
effective for subsequent formats (when running --test of all formats). 
Not a big deal, we can address it if/when needed.
