I am now working with my passthrough bdev directly from my application, and require adding/removing them dynamically. In addition, I also require starting/stopping the reactor on demand without tearing down the entire system (e.g. dpdk stays initialized). This mostly works out of the box, but there are a few globals and bdev internal fields which require re-init or tear down.

In addition, the copy engine did not io_unregister itself, so I also added this in the patchset, allowing me the following application life span:

- env init (init config, spdk_env_init)

- reactors init

- while (application is alive)

  subsystem_init + reactor start


  Do some NVMeF stuff


  subsysem_fini + reactors stop

- reactors_fini

- rpc_finish

I submitted the following patches for review:
