Modify the PMD_REGISTER_DRIVER macro, bifurcating it into two
(PMD_REGISTER_DRIVER_PDEV and PMD_REGISTER_DRIVER_VDEV.  Both of these do the
same thing the origional macro did, but both add the definition of a string
variable that informs interested parties of the name of the pmd, and the former
also defines an second string that holds the symbol name of the pci table that
is registered by this pmd.

pmdinfo uses this information to extract hardware support from an object file
and create a json string to make hardware support info discoverable later.

drivers/net/qede is missing and causes a build failure with a fresh config.

It seems to be missing in v1 but I managed to test it, guess it must've 
been an old .config generated before QEDE got merged.

No, It only got added recently.  I pulled when I started writing this (about two
weeks ago), and it got added during its development.  I'll rebase

Hello Neil,

just few notes...

(sorry if you've recevied this twice, importing mbox files from patchwork
always changes my default From: field)

I could not find any of those: PMD_REGISTER_DRIVER_PDEV, PMD_REGISTER_DRIVER_VDEV
in this patch. I think the message is misleading...

I am interested as this may lead to merge conflicts when generalizing
rte_pci_device/driver and stuff around it.

This should be done in an opposite way. The rte_pci.h should include rte_dev.h
(more specific includes a generic one). I've introduced this in the following patch:

 [PATCH v1 01/28] eal: make enum rte_kernel_driver non-PCI specific
 http://dpdk.org/dev/patchwork/patch/12488/

Jan

Forgot to fix up the changelog entry, when I merged these two macros back to the
single PMD_REGISTER_DRIVER
