[dpdk-dev] [dpdk-next-net] [PATCH] net/af_packet: fix docs guide

The framecnt option represents a counter (integer) that does not 
reflect size. It is somewhat parallel in this sense to the framecount
member of pkt_rx_queue/pkt_tx_queue (or tp_frame_nr in tpacket_req).
This patch removes the size indicator of bytes ("B") from framecnt in 
the af_packet guide. 

Fixes: c8dba1ee6cde ("doc: add af_packet PMD guide")
