I really hope we don't end up with two different ways to spell this
same thing.

I think module versions are discouraged these days

Why these trivial assessors? Seems unnecessary, or should at least be
static inlines in a header

Usually we want to see symbols consistently prefixed with vdpa_*, is
there a reason why register/unregister are swapped?

IMHO device_initialize should not be called inside something called
register, toooften we find out that the caller drivers need the device
to be initialized earlier, ie to use the kref, or something.

I find the best flow is to have some init function that does the
device_initialize and sets the device_name that the driver can call
early.

Shouldn't there be a device/driver matching process of some kind?
