[dpdk-dev] [PATCH v2 1/7] eal: introduce portable format attribute

When using __attribute__((format(...)) on functions, GCC on Windows
assumes MS-specific format string by default, even if the underlying
stdio implementation is ANSI-compliant (either MS Unicersal CRT
or MinGW implementation). Wrap attribute into a macro that forces
GNU-specific format string when using GCC.
