From: Narcisa Vasile <navasile@microsoft.com>

The existing rte_ctrl_thread_create() function will be replaced
with rte_thread_ctrl_thread_create() that uses the internal
EAL thread API.

This patch only introduces the new control thread creation
function. Replacing of the old function needs to be done according
to the ABI change procedures, to avoid an ABI break.
