Added a note with information what happens if RDT/DPDK dependency will be missing on host during manual starting bar-collectd container(with info what should be done in such scenario to start bar-collectd anyway) Change-Id: I11ba595e8925027c772920876c4bf2967f33de88 Signed-off-by: Radoslaw Jablonski <radoslawx.jablonski@intel.com>
