The convention in other network drivers is to use net_XXX in the vdev name.
In AF_XDP that would be:

RTE_PMD_REGISTER_VDEV(net_af_xdp, pmd_af_xdp_drv);

About naming, I would just drop AF_ from the name everywhere, the driver
is about running over XDP, and the "AF_" is just a prefix for address family.

Why not:
	net/xdp
