While I agree a cleanup is needed, this small patch is only intended to 
fix the priority issue of the shared library builds, which are broken at 
the moment.
The initial patch should have had rte_power_turbo_status, not 
Rather than moving code around at this stage, I propose having the three 
exposed functions in the map file (with the correct names).
Then, later on, I can do an ABI breakage notification for the next 
release to rename all the other rte*.h files, as some consumers of DPDK 
may be using those directly, at which stage we will be down to just 
exporting the functions in rte_power.h.
Does that sound OK with you?
