There is a compilation error when RTE_LIBRTE_VIRTIO_DEBUG_INIT is enabled:
fatal error: format specifies type 'unsigned int'
but the argument has type 'uint64_t' (aka 'unsigned long') [-Wformat]
                        VIRTIO_USER_ARG_QUEUES_NUM, queues,

I will fix it when pulling next-virtio.

Considering this log is about an error,
does it make sense to have a compile option to enable it?
I was expecting that "git grep 'PMD_INIT_LOG(ERR,' | wc -l" would return 0.
Unfortunately, there are 434 occurences...
