Remove default values in modes-slurm.sh
modes-slurm.sh currently contains default values for its
--cores parameters. This makes certain requests impossible, e.g. to use all cores on all nodes of a specified partition when one does not know or want to specify how many nodes and/or cores there are, or to use all cores on the selected nodes which may be inhomogenous.

Actual behaviour: only 8 cores are used.
Expected behaviour: all 192 cores of the r930 node (caserta) are used.
