[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] librte_eal: ease init in a docker container

move_pages() is only used to get the numa node id, but this function
is not allowed by default in docker (it needs CAP_SYS_NICE and an update of
the seccomp profile).
get_mempolicy() also requires CAP_SYS_NICE but doesn't need any change in
the default seccomp profile.

Note that the returned value of move_pages() was not checked, thus some
errors could be hidden (if the requested id was 0).
