MBUF pool of size 8192 was causing packet loss when using four ports. To
fix this issue this patch specifies the number of MBUF's per port
instead of having one set MBUF pool size, this way it will adapt to any
number of ports.

Fixes: e64833f2273a ("examples/l2fwd-keepalive: add sample application")
