How about adding an attribute something like below in addition to controller id.

$ devlink port show
pci/0000:00:08.0/1: type eth netdev enp0s8f0_pf0 flavour pcipf pfnum 0 ecnum 0 external true splitable false
                                                                                                                                                    ^^^^^^^^^^^
