ethdev: remove driver name from device private data
rte_driver->name has the driver name and all physical and virtual devices has access to it. Previously it was not possible for virtual ethernet devices to access rte_driver->name field (because eth_dev used to keep only pci_dev), and it was required to save driver name in the device private struct. After re-works on bus and vdev, it is possible for all bus types to access rte_driver. It is able to remove the driver name from ethdev device private data and use eth_dev->device->driver->name.
