Auto runmode for live capture does not honour the threads variable.

When forcing the running mode to auto in one of the live capture mode, the threads configuration variable which can be used in af_packet or pfring is not honored. Only autofp or worker honor this variable.
This is or a bug or a documentation issue.

Initial message is hard to understand one month later: autofp and worker Live urnning mode have a ModThreadsCount parameter which is used to say how much threads are used per-device in af_packet and pf_ring. Auto does not have this mode and thus only start a thread for the auto mode.
