+1 for renaming enum values. It's not a problem of librte_cmdline itself but a
problem of its consumption on Windows, however renaming enum values doesn't
break ABI and winn make librte_cmdline API "namespaced".

I don't see a clean way not to expose windows.h, because pthread.h depends on
it, and if we hide implementation, librte_eal would have to export pthread
symbols on Windows, which is a hack (or is it?).
