Updated the ARM and added a ChangeLog entry.

1653. [security] tmark
Added a new parameter, "max-row-errors", to Memfile lease database
configuration for kea-dhcp4 and kea-dhcp6. This parameter can be
used to limit the number of rows discarded due to error during
lease file loading after which the server will abandon the effort
and exit. The default value of 0 disables the limit.

An example configuration of the memfile backend is presented below:
- ``max-row-errors``: when the server loads a lease file, it is processed
row by row, each row contaning a single lease. If a row is flawed and
cannot be processed correctly the server will log it, discard the row,
and go on to the next row. This parameter can be used to set a limit on
the number of such discards that may occur after which the server will
abandon the effort and exit. The default value of 0 disables the limit
and allows the server to process the entire file, regardless of how many
rows are discarded.
