It seems you are reverting the commit d39670086a63:
eal: parse driver argument before probing drivers
In some cases the virtual device name should be totally different than
the driver being used for the device. Therefore lets parse the devargs for
the "driver" argument before probing drivers in vdev_probe_all_drivers().
Is this "driver" option useless?
