[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/virtio-user: fix missing driver name

API rte_eth_dev_info_get() fills driver name according to drv_name
of rte_eth_dev_data. But we have not fill such info in virtio_user.

We do not use the same one with virtio device as some applications
might depend on driver name to differetiate kinds of devices, such
as VPP.
