Here is why rte_ethdev_pci.h should be considered private to DPDK:

* rte_eth_copy_pci_info - intended for device init, that is, driver job
* eth_dev_pci_specific_init - wrapper for the above
* rte_eth_dev_pci_allocate - @internal, deals with private data
* rte_eth_dev_pci_generic_probe - @internal, deals with private data
* rte_eth_dev_pci_generic_remove - @internal
