A pci_dev is tied to an adapter, that can be tied to multiple LIFs (logical interfaces), 
an eth_dev is created with rte_eth_dev_create for each LIF. The reason we have the
adapters list is for example to handle eth_ionic_pci_remove which is called on a 
pci_dev, thus we need to keep the adapter with the list of LIFs (eth_devs) to destroy
them.

Btw, all other comments have been fixed, a new patch-set is coming.

Thank you
Alfredo
