What's the purpose of this?
Not sure we are allowed to modify the configs in the Makefiles.

I think the cast is not needed.
Are you sure you want to use malloc() and not rte_malloc()? It would be in
hugepages.

I still have some concerns about the fact that the mempool handler assumes that
the objects are necessarily mbufs. I guess for this reason it does not pass
mempool autotests?

We should probably move forward and let it go in 17.05, but this is something
that should be enhanced in my opinion.
