perf bench: Harmonize all the -l/--nr_loops options
We have three benchmarking subsystems that specify some sort of 'number of loops' parameter - but all of them do it inconsistently: numa: -l/--nr_loops sched messaging: -l/--loops mem memset/memcpy: -i/--iterations Harmonize them to -l/--nr_loops by picking the numa variant - which is also the most likely one to have existing scripting which we don't want to break. Plus improve the parameter help texts to indicate the default value for the nr_loops variable to keep users from guessing ... Also propagate the naming to internal variables.
