Moving from uint8_t to uint16_t in the Eventdev API seems like a good 
idea to me. The need for eventdev ports typically grows with growing 
lcore count, and some systems aren't too far from 255 (or is it 256)?


I don't think it makes sense to use uint16_t internally in DSW before 
this happen, though.

64 to save some memory, in the common case.
