Atomic configuration has trouble with large integers #255

"Mark" is a 32-bit integer. This atomic configuration file should yield a predictable result:

	"pool4": [
			"mark": 4294967295,
			"prefix": "",
			"protocol": "UDP"

But this happens in my VM:

$ jool --pool4 --display
|       Mark | Proto |     Max iterations |         Address | Port min | Port max |
| 2147483648 |   UDP |       1024 ( auto) | |    61001 |    65535 |
  (Fetched 1 samples.)

If inserted with --pool4 --add it works fine. The problem is that the Json parser reads integers as signed, so the entire second half of the unsigned range is wasted. Therefore, this bug presumably only affects 32-bit machines. (Or any machine that interprets int as 32-bits.)

Assigning out-of-bounds values into variables is considered undefined behaviour in C, so YMMV on the results.
