v8:
* Change logging style.

v7:
* Use a natural sounding names instead of argument name.

v6:
* Change logging grammar.
* "Failed to" change to "Cannot".
* Break the message part to next line.
* Delete param check for internal function.

v5:
* Keep "RTE_ETH_VALID_PORTID_OR_ERR_RET(port_id, -ENODEV)"
  and "dev = &rte_eth_devices[port_id]" together.

v4:
* add error logging.
* delete check in control path API.

v3:
* set port_id checked first.
* add error logging.

v2:
* Removed unnecessary checks.
* Deleted checks in internal API.
* Added documentation in the header file.

I would remove "next".
Cannot iterate NULL iter

"nowait ethdev" is not correct.
I think you can just remove "nowait".

Hi Thomas, Connor,

The issues seems only syntax issues, I can fix them so that we can get the patch 
for -rc1, I will send a new version soon.

The 'nowait' was just to distinguish from the otherwise identical
message in rte_eth_link_get(). Probably it can be some way better worded.

Given they are alternative functions,
I think it is OK to have the same message.
We should not be lost in the code too much when looking for it.
