[dpdk-users] If shared libraries are used vdev doesn't work anymore

If dpdk is built with 'CONFIG_RTE_BUILD_SHARED_LIB=y' then
using the vdev feature (args: e.g. -c 3 -n 4 --vdev="crypto_openssl")
the rte_eal_init() returns 'ERROR: failed to parse device "crypto_openssl"'.
It looks to me that rte_eal_devargs_add() calling rte_eal_devargs_parse()
is trying to check the device name before the shared libraries are read
and the internal data arrays are setup.
