The tool dpdk-hugepages.py, added in DPDK 20.11,
is referenced in the guides instead of more complicate commands.

The original Linux commands are kept in linux_gsg/sys_reqs.rst
and nics/build_and_test.rst.

Applied

PS: sorry for applying quickly but I feel there won't be much more review
of this patch.

Wouldn't be better to use 'dpdk-hugepages.py' only, or perhaps 
'./usertools/dpdk-hugepages.py' but not full path.
The dpdk path, '/root/dpdk/', assumption can be missleading.

Using this fixed path is consistent with the rest of this howto.
Maybe you would prefer a rewrite of the howto?
