Apologies for not bringing this up before, but do we really want the rte_eal_check_module inline in the header? I think it would be better to declare it in eal_private but move the definition into eal.c.

I'm not sure this message is meaningful. That ioctl call can either -1, 0 or 1. We already handle 1 separately; -1 means an error; 0 means IOMMU type 1 is not supported. The return value will *not* indicate which IOMMU types *are* currently supported - it will only indicate that the IOMMU type you requested is not supported. So there's really no point in indicating the return value in case of ret 0 - it is best to just mention that requested IOMMU type support is not enabled in VFIO.
