Neil Horman Sept. 30, 2014, 3:18 p.m. UTC
Add initial pass header files to support symbol versioning.

---
Change notes
v2)
* Fixed ifdef in rte_compat.h to test for RTE_BUILD_SHARED_LIB instead of the
non-existant RTE_SYMBOL_VERSIONING

* Fixed VERSION_SYMBOL macro to add the needed extra @ to make versioning work
properly

* Improved/Clarified documentation

v3)
* Added missing macros to fully export the symver directive specification

v4)
* Added macro definitions for !SHARED_LIB case
* Improved documentation

Hi Neil,

I was wondering about the use of BASE_SYMBOL macro (as you left it out of the example/doc).

From what I understood (according to ld documentation on versioning), that macro would 
bound the symbol to the unspecified base version of the symbol.
You would want that to provide backward compatibility to apps linked against DSOs pre-versioning.
I was under the impression that there would not be support for such apps (therefore no need
for BASE_SYMBOL macro).

You are correct, there really is no need for it in our immediate purpose.  I
only provided it for completeness of the versioning specification language
(hence the lack of example).  We can remove it if you like, but I figured it was
potentially useful to include.
