Hello Gaetan,
            Sorry my bad, i think i captured it for the wrong BDF ...
So the overarching goal here is that i want to create/add a
representor port for 06:02.01 using 06:02:00 as the backing/parent
device on the vswitch.

I recaptured the debug with 06:02:00

Breakpoint 1, pci_name_set (dev=0x5d44e00) at
/root/dpdk-19.11/drivers/bus/pci/pci_common.c:65
65                              dev->name, sizeof(dev->name));
(gdb) p /x *dev
$3 = {next = {tqe_next = 0x0, tqe_prev = 0x0}, device = {next =
{tqe_next = 0x0, tqe_prev = 0x0}, name = 0x0, driver = 0x0, bus =
0x3a59a00, numa_node = 0x0, devargs = 0x0}, addr = {domain = 0x0, bus
= 0x6, devid = 0x2, function = 0x0}, id = {class_id = 0x20000,
vendor_id = 0x14e4,
    device_id = 0x16dc, subsystem_vendor_id = 0x14e4,
subsystem_device_id = 0x16d7}

devargs = pci_devargs_lookup(dev);

 p *devargs
$5 = {next = {tqe_next = 0x0, tqe_prev = 0x3a67970 <devargs_list>},
type = RTE_DEVTYPE_WHITELISTED_PCI, policy = RTE_DEV_WHITELISTED, name
= "0000:06:02.0", '\000' <repeats 51 times>, {args = 0x5d1c8a0
"representor=[1]", drv_str = 0x5d1c8a0 "representor=[1]"},
  bus = 0x3a59a00 <rte_pci_bus>, cls = 0x0, bus_str = 0x0, cls_str =
0x0, data = 0x0}

So as you can see here , this time the devargs is *not NULL* and has
the value of 'representor=[1]'

local_dev_probe (devargs=0x5cefec0 "0000:06:02.0,representor=[1]",
new_dev=0x7ffd3e872758) at
/root/dpdk-19.11/lib/librte_eal/common/eal_common_dev.c:162
162             dev = da->bus->find_device(NULL, cmp_dev_name, da->name);
(gdb) p *da
$7 = {next = {tqe_next = 0x0, tqe_prev = 0x3a67970 <devargs_list>},
type = RTE_DEVTYPE_WHITELISTED_PCI, policy = RTE_DEV_WHITELISTED, name
= "0000:06:02.0", '\000' <repeats 51 times>, {args = 0x5d1c8a0
"representor=[1]", drv_str = 0x5d1c8a0 "representor=[1]"},
  bus = 0x3a59a00 <rte_pci_bus>, cls = 0x0, bus_str = 0x0, cls_str =
0x0, data = 0x0}

(gdb) p *dev
$8 = {next = {tqe_next = 0x0, tqe_prev = 0x0}, name = 0x5c6df00
"0000:06:02.0", driver = 0x3a6b7f0 <bnxt_rte_pmd+16>, bus = 0x3a59a00
<rte_pci_bus>, numa_node = 0, devargs = 0x0}

So it appears that 'find_device' is returning NULL devargs ?

I found that indeed is the case in pci_find_device()

pci_find_device (start=0x0, cmp=0x4b92d8 <cmp_dev_name>,
data=0x5bb53f8) at /root/dpdk-19.11/drivers/bus/pci/pci_common.c:426
426                             return &pdev->device;

gdb) p pdev->device
$2 = {next = {tqe_next = 0x0, tqe_prev = 0x0}, name = 0x5b14f00
"0000:06:02.0", driver = 0x3a6b7f0 <bnxt_rte_pmd+16>, bus = 0x3a59a00
<rte_pci_bus>, numa_node = 0, devargs = 0x0}

Any further ideas ?

Thanks
Som

You are able to call rte_dev_probe twice on the same virtual function, because the check against it does not work without the devargs being linked? If that's correct, this is the real bug IMO, and there could be other ways to mitigate this.
