Previous version of versioning macros didn't work properly. When
building dpdk as static library, external application couldn't use
versioned function. It happened, because versioning macros for static
library were empty. Now the same version of versioning macros is used
for both static and dynamic libraries.

NAK

Sorry it took me a bit to get to this, but you don't want to remove th empty
definitions from this header.  The .symver directives aren't meaningful when
doing a static build, and we don't want them to cause any odd compilation
errors.
