Commit Message

Gaëtan Rivet July 3, 2018, 10:14 p.m. UTC
A device iterator allows iterating over a set of devices.
This set is defined by the two descriptions offered,

  * rte_bus
  * rte_class

Only one description can be provided, or both. It is not allowed to
provide no description at all.

Each layer of abstraction then performs a filter based on the
description provided. This filtering allows iterating on their internal
set of devices, stopping when a match is valid and returning the current
iteration context.

This context allows starting the next iteration from the same point and
going forward.
