[dpdk-dev] [PATCH 2/2] net/vhost: prevent multiple setup on reconfig

Ethdev's .dev_configure callback can be called multiple
time during a device life-time, but Vhost makes the
wrong assumption that it is not the case and try to
setup again the device on reconfiguration.

This patch ensures the device hasn't been already setup
before proceeding.

Fixes: 3d01b759d267 ("net/vhost: delay driver setup")
