Extending rte_vdev_driver to implement this detection would be an ABI breakage.
This is a driver-only API (rte_vdev_driver is only used by the vdev
bus and drivers afaics).

Doing this is allowed as per my understanding of the ABI policy which
guarantees ABI stability for applications.
We do not guarantee this stability for OOT drivers.
