I think PMDs shouldn't have to initialize the values that they don't use/care,
otherwise it will be very error prone. Can this be handled in the API level?

Like in 'rte_eth_dev_info_get()', after "memset(dev_info, ..)" set 'switch_info'
as INVALID before dev_ops called. PMD can overwrite this if they want, otherwise
it will stay invalid and I think this is safer.
