RTE_MAX_MEMSEG_LISTS = 128 is not enough for high-memory machines, in our case,
we need to increase it to 8192. so add an option so user can override it.
RTE_MBUF_REFCNT_ATOMIC = 0 is not necessary for applications like Seastar,
where it's safe to assume that the mbuf refcnt is only updated by a single
core only.


* s/mbuf_refcnt_atomic/atomic_mbuf_ref_counts/, and update the 
  title of the commit message accordingly
* explain the expected number of MEMSEG_LISTS in commit message.
* remove the empty line after the newly added option
