Using the python standard argument parser instead of C library
style getopt gives a number of advantages such as checking
for conflicting arguments, restricting choices, and automatically
generating help messages.

The result is similar to the original the only visible change
is that some of the help messages are now less wordy.

-where DEVICE1, DEVICE2 etc, are specified via PCI "domain:bus:slot.func" syntax
-or "bus:slot.func" syntax. For devices bound to Linux kernel drivers, they may

-
-Options:
-    --help, --usage:
-        Display usage information and quit
-
-    -s, --status:
-        Print the current status of all known network, crypto, event
-        and mempool devices.
-        For each device, it displays the PCI domain, bus, slot and function,
-        along with a text description of the device. Depending upon whether the
-        device is being used by a kernel driver, the igb_uio driver, or no
-        driver, other relevant information will be displayed:
-        * the Linux interface name e.g. if=eth0
-        * the driver being used e.g. drv=igb_uio
-        * any suitable drivers not currently using that device
-            e.g. unused=igb_uio
-        NOTE: if this flag is passed along with a bind/unbind option, the
-        status display will always occur after the other operations have taken
-        place.
-
-    --status-dev:
-        Print the status of given device group. Supported device groups are:
-        "net", "baseband", "crypto", "event", "mempool" and "compress"
-
-    -b driver, --bind=driver:
-        Select the driver to use or \"none\" to unbind the device
-
-    -u, --unbind:
-        Unbind a device (Equivalent to \"-b none\")
-
-    --force:
-        By default, network devices which are used by Linux - as indicated by
-        having routes in the routing table - cannot be modified. Using the
-        --force flag overrides this behavior, allowing active links to be
-        forcibly unbound.
-        WARNING: This can lead to loss of network connection and should be used
-        with caution.
