Hi Aaron,

These warnings were flagged in an earlier review but I was going to 
leave the markers as there are some new features being introduced in 
DPDK that would allow us to add hugepage memory at runtime, we'll get 
this functionality if/when we move to DPDK 18.11, I feel it would 
warrant re-examining these values then as we may be able to request more 
accurate memory requirements at that point.
