On x86, calling inb/outb special instructions (used in UIO ioport
read/write parts) is only possible if the right IO permissions has been

The only user of this API (the net/virtio pmd) checks this
unconditionnaly but this should be hidden by the rte_pci_ioport API
itself and only checked when the device is bound to a UIO driver.

Changelog since v1:
- change log message level from DEBUG to ERR,
- add device name in log message,
