Since the built driver filenames have changed in DPDK 20.11, we need to
update the driver doc to match.

Most drivers start their section with the driver filename highlighted in
bold, while a number were missing the highlight. When updating the names,
add the markers for bold text to any missing it, so as to have things more
consistent.

Fixes: a20b2c01a7a1 ("build: standardize component names and defines")

NOTE: the mlx4 and mlx5 chapters include a lot of output text which includes
the driver name. I have updated this in the patch to use the new name, but at
least for mlx4 I can't see some of the quoted printouts in the code any more,
and for both drivers I think the output needs to be double-checked for
correctness by maintainers.
