-* devargs: An ABI change is planned for 17.08 for the structure ``rte_devargs``.

+* eal: several API and ABI changes are planned for ``rte_devargs`` in v17.11.
+ The format of device command line parameters will change. The bus will need

+ was used to identify a bus and will disappear.
+ The structure ``rte_devargs`` will change.
+ The ``rte_devargs_list`` will be made private.
