You can do that, but you'll also need to make the max_send_size be
16kb (and therefore ob1 will switch to rendezvous protocol above that
size). See our paper on the long message protocol that OMPI uses --
the minimum "large" message size was specifically designed to be kinda
big so that we could do some send/recv to offset the registration
penalty of pinning user's large buffers.
