From: Ivan Malov <ivan.ma...@oktetlabs.ru>

Attaching a vdev port may result in multiple
ports actually added because a vdev port may
have slave devices to be attached implicitly.

Ethdev attach API has to fill in the port ID
to be read back by the user and what it does
is take the last assigned ID from the common
list after attach completion. Such an ID may
belong to a slave device and not to the vdev.

This mistake must be precluded by requesting
the port ID by name of device being attached.
