[Spread-users] Big messages in Spread

Since we were encountering some issues with big messages, I found
the following two things in Spread that should probably be changed.
For completeness sake we are using fibrechannel datagrams that have a
maximum of 964 bytes (MAX_PACKET_SIZE == 964):

  - MAX_SCATTER_ELEMENTS is defined to be 100 in two files ("sp.h" and

  - scatter.c uses 1440 as a constant instead of (MAX_PACKET_SIZE - 32)
    where I don't know what the 32 represents. May be the 32 should
    become a defined constant depending on its meaning.
