If the user requests to use an lcore above 128 using -c,
the eal will exit with "EAL: invalid coremask syntax" and
very little else useful information.

This patch adds some extra information suggesting to use --lcores
so that physical cores above RTE_MAX_LCORE (default 128) can be
used. This is achieved by using the --lcores option by mapping
the logical cores in the application to physical cores.

For example, if "-c 0x300000000000000000000000000000000" is
used, we see the following additional output on the command line:

EAL: lcore 128 >= RTE_MAX_LCORE (128)
EAL: lcore 129 >= RTE_MAX_LCORE (128)
EAL: to use high physical core ids , please use --lcores to
map them to lcore ids below RTE_MAX_LCORE,
EAL:     e.g. --lcores 0@128,1@129

changes in v3
   * added this patch to the set. Addresses the changes for
     the -c option.
changes in v4
   * fixed buffer overrun in populating lcore array.
   * switched from strlcpy to strdup due to a clang error.
changes in v5
   * replaced strdup and frees with a const char *, as we
     just need to keep track of original pointer location.
   * reverted err: usage to return -1, as no free() needed.
   * other minod code cleanups.
