Segment fd API does not support getting segment fd's from
externally allocated memory, so return proper error code
on any attempts to do so. This changes API behavior, so
document the change as well.

Fixes: 5282bb1c3695 ("mem: allow memseg lists to be marked as external")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org

Notes:
    The API is experimental, no deprecation notice needed.
