Add 'rte_' prefix to functions:
- rename is_same_ether_addr() as rte_is_same_ether_addr().
- rename is_zero_ether_addr() as rte_is_zero_ether_addr().
- rename is_unicast_ether_addr() as rte_is_unicast_ether_addr().
- rename is_multicast_ether_addr() as rte_is_multicast_ether_addr().
- rename is_broadcast_ether_addr() as rte_is_broadcast_ether_addr().
- rename is_universal_ether_addr() as rte_is_universal_ether_addr().
- rename is_local_admin_ether_addr() as rte_is_local_admin_ether_addr().
- rename is_valid_assigned_ether_addr() as rte_is_valid_assigned_ether_addr().
- rename eth_random_addr() as rte_eth_random_addr().
- rename ether_addr_copy() as rte_ether_addr_copy().
- rename ether_format_addr() as rte_ether_format_addr().
