My concern isn't about the above change (which handled the
errors when reading multiplier). In fact, above change looks
good to me! :-)  I mean the below changes in this patch:

 	while (pos) {
 		ret = rte_pci_read_config(dev, &cap, sizeof(cap), pos);
-		if (ret < 0) {
-			PMD_INIT_LOG(ERR,
-				"failed to read pci cap at pos: %x", pos);
+		if (ret != sizeof(cap)) {
+			PMD_INIT_LOG(DEBUG,
+				     "failed to read pci cap at pos: %x ret %d",
+				     pos, ret);
 			break;
 		}

With this change, it will give up reading other capabilities
when failed to read a full virtio PCI capability structure
(the returned bytes are less than the expected bytes) even
though when the capability it's reading isn't a virtio vendor
specific capability. Maybe it would be better to read the
first two bytes first and check whether it's the capability
we want to parse (i.e. vendor capability and MSIX capability).
Something like this:

https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/blob/72445a41b3ff/sys/dev/pci/pci.c#L1491-L1497

How do you think?

Thanks
