Subject [Impala-ASF-CR] IMPALA-4633: Change broken gflag default for Kudu client mem

IMPALA-4633: Change broken gflag default for Kudu client mem

We discovered that the current Kudu client defaults in the
KuduTableSink are causing a large number of queries to
timeout, failing the query. The current default value of the
'mutation buffer size' is 100MB which results in higher
write throughput than Kudu can currently handle on large
clusters.  By decreasing the value of this flag, more RPCs
will be sent for the same amount of data, i.e. throttling
the load on Kudu. We found tests to be more successful on
200 nodes with a 10MB buffer size than the previous 100MB
value where most queries couldn't complete due to timeouts.
These queries were not timing out with the 10MB value. This
appears to work well on 9 node stress tests as well.
