Below in snprintf(), in theory it can be called for vdev as well.

const struct rte_memzone *
rte_eth_dma_zone_reserve(const struct rte_eth_dev *dev, const char 
                          uint16_t queue_id, size_t size, unsigned align,
                          int socket_id)
         char z_name[RTE_MEMZONE_NAMESIZE];
         const struct rte_memzone *mz;

         snprintf(z_name, sizeof(z_name), "%s_%s_%d_%d",
                  dev->device->driver->name, ring_name,
                  dev->data->port_id, queue_id);

         mz = rte_memzone_lookup(z_name);
         if (mz)
                 return mz;

         return rte_memzone_reserve_aligned(z_name, size, socket_id,
                         RTE_MEMZONE_IOVA_CONTIG, align);
