[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] mempool: remove non-EAL thread note from header

Commit 4b5062755aa7 ("mempool: allow user-owned cache") added the
capability for non-EAL threads to use the mempool library by checking
rte_lcore_id() before accessing the per-lcore cache. This commit
removes the note indicating that the mempool library cannot be used
safely by non-EAL threads.

Also, fix a typo.
