I'm actually using ATLAS as a backend, so I don't understand why I get
the correct result with column_major but not with row_major (for the
first test case, since all other tests, either with transposed
triangular matrices or with banded matrices, give wrong results

Do you observe the same thing on your computer with the code given in
my post? (replace M(i,j) == std::rand with M(i,j) = std::rand , and dM
with M, they were copy/paste errors).
