iproute2 commands really should have a consistent user interface.
Unfortunately -N and -n are inconsistent with the newer commands like
devlink. dcb has not been released yet so time to fix this.

devlink is the only one using the horribly named 'no-nice-names', and we
should avoid propagating that to dcb. At a minimum it should be
'numeric' which is consistent with the others.

My preference is also to have dcb follow ip and tc (vs ss) with '-n' to
mean -netns and -N' to mean numeric.
