> eal: probe new virtual bus after other bus devices
> eal: move virtual device probing into a bus
> eal: remove unused rte_eal_dev_init()
> eal: Refactor vdev driver probe/remove
> eal: add struct rte_vdev_device
> eal: add virtual device name helper function
> eal: add virtual device arguments helper function
> eal: make virtual bus use rte_vdev_device
> eal: make virtual driver probe and remove take rte_vdev_device
The 3 additional patches from Gaetan are squashed with the EAL change
