Hi Connor,

I agree this is an issue in the API, cc'ed Andrew and Thomas.

I vaguely remember that "dev_started = 0" was required for some dev_ops, 
but not quite sure, let me check this.
At worst we can do as following to be sure:

   dev->data->dev_started = 0;
   ret = (*dev->dev_ops->dev_stop)(dev)
   if (ret)
     dev->data->dev_started = 1;

Also we need to clarify in the API documentation (.h file), what is the 
status of the device if 'rte_eth_dev_stop()' returned error.


Btw, would you be OK to separate this ethdev patch from your bonding 
patch, to not stuck your series because of ethdev one.
