pthread_setname_np refuses names larger than 16 bytes (\0 included).
Rather than return an error, truncate the name to this limit in the
rte_thread_setname helper.

Caught with ixgbe which creates control thread with name
"ixgbe-link-handler":

Configuring Port 0 (socket 0)
EAL: Cannot set name for ctrl thread
...
EAL: Cannot set name for ctrl thread

Port 0: link state change event
...
EAL: Cannot set name for ctrl thread

Port 0: link state change event

Note: before this change, the thread would keep its original name, which
meant in my test for the ixgbe handler either "dpdk-testpmd" or
"eal-intr-thread".

That's a pity POSIX is not defining a constant for this limit.

pthread_setname "_np" :-)
