The cited text was from the OMPI FAQ ("Tuning" / "sm" section, item 6).
I made the change in r1309.

In ompi/mca/btl/base/btl_base_mca.c, I added the phrase "including
header" to both

"rndv_eager_limit"
"Size (in bytes, including header) of \"phase 1\" fragment sent for all
large messages (must be >= 0 and <= eager_limit)"
module->btl_rndv_eager_limit

and

"eager_limit"
"Maximum size (in bytes, including header) of \"short\" messages (must
be >= 1)."
module->btl_eager_limit

but I left

"max_send_size"
"Maximum size (in bytes) of a single \"phase 2\" fragment of a long
message when using the pipeline protocol (must be >= 1)"
module->btl_max_send_size

alone (for some combination of lukewarm reasons). Changes are in r24085.
