[dpdk-users] Retrieve NIC vendor name using PCI vendor ID

Hi all,

I would like to ask how one could retrieve the name of a NIC's vendor using
the PCI vendor ID.
For example, is there any mapping between PCI_VENDOR_ID_INTEL and a const
char* that returns e.g., "Intel"?

Moreover, why are the vendor IDs redefined by DPDK instead of being reused
from Linux
It would be more convenient if a single RTE library could expose those IDs
to the applications. Currently I see those IDs being spread across the
different drivers.

Thanks in advance,
