mysiam_block_size is not visible via SHOW [GLOBAL] VARIABLES, despite being a global server system variable.

How to repeat:
SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'myisam_block_size';

(basically, myisam_block_size currently is not really a system variable at all)

Changing documentation to document myisam_block_size as a startup option only, not as a system variable.
