[Fiona] Some PMDs have a limit on how many links can be in an sgl chain, e.g. in QAT case the
PMD allocates a pool of internal structures of a suitable size during device initialisation, this is not
a hard limit but can be configured in .config to give the user control over the memory resources allocated.
This perf-tool max-num-sgl-segs is so the user can pick a value <= whatever the PMD's max is.
