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
"Size (in bytes, including header) of \"phase 1\" fragment sent for all
large messages (must be >= 0 and <= eager_limit)"
"Maximum size (in bytes, including header) of \"short\" messages (must
be >= 1)."
but I left
"Maximum size (in bytes) of a single \"phase 2\" fragment of a long
message when using the pipeline protocol (must be >= 1)"
alone (for some combination of lukewarm reasons). Changes are in r24085.
