It needs to be a driver on top of buses.

What would be such infrastructure? A new driver type?
Something like drivers/platform/?
I am not sure it is required for this driver given it is
most probably only a temporary driver waiting for the NetVSC PMD
and a full hotplug support in DPDK internals.
I think we should create such new infrastructure only when we are
sure it is needed permanently for some drivers.
> My definition of PMD is it can send and receive
It is the definition of an ethdev driver, yes.
