EAL thinks that vfio kmod is not loaded at this point.

We see no log here for the devices that are used later.

- Are the (below) devices bound to vfio-pci or any other kmod at this
point of the init?
- Is the spdk_nvme driver loaded at this point?
- I suppose forcing --iova-mode=pa resolves the issue, but can you confirm this?
