tools: allow binding to other network class devices
dpdk_nic_bind will only handle Ethernet devices, but Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro, for example, is a Network class device, but not an Ethernet one. Even though this allows other devices in the list, like Wireless devices, this should not be a problem. Signed-off-by: Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo <>
