[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v3] mem: warn user when running without NUMA support

Running in non-legacy mode on a NUMA-enabled system without libnuma
is unsupported, so explicitly print out a warning when trying to
do so.

Running in legacy mode without libnuma is still supported whether or
not we are running with libnuma support enabled, so also fix init to
allow that scenario.

Notes:
    v3:
    - Fix ill-conceived v2 "fix" by adding getopt header
      to eal_options.h instead of removing the include
