I doubt it should be public. How it is supposed to be used? 
Any application code for DPDK necessarily calls rte_eal_init() first,
after that this function would always return true.

I'd drop it, but no strong opinion.
Since allocation type is automatic and all other properties can be set later,
there are no use cases for any options here.
And if they appear, flags may be insufficient as well.
