okay, i now understand how we ended up compiling this header directly. long
story short we just had it #include directly somewhere.

as you have noted it is a private header. a quick examination of the other
installed headers shows that it is not included by any of them.

i will update the patch to remove the cast from rte_ethdev_pci.h since it
is not necessary.

would you also like a patch submitted that stops installing the header. the
change will be breaking if any other consumers have made the same mistake as
we did. i'm not sure what dpdk's stance is on pulling headers back out of
public space.
