Lower the minimum value for MaxMemInQueues to 64 MB for relays.

For clients, there is no minimum value; in both cases, we warn if
the value seems too low.

Closes ticket 24308.

o Minor features (denial-of-service memory limiter):
- Allow the user to configure even lower values for the MaxMemInQueues
parameter. Relays now enforce a minimum of 64 MB, when previously
the minimum was 256 MB. On clients, there is no minimum. Relays and
clients will both warn if the value is set so low that Tor is likely
to stop working. Closes ticket 24308.
