>From the message in v1, it seems more appropriate to check it in
the driver, because:
1. if the driver only support page pool, then the check is not
   really necessary.
2. if the driver support both page_pool API and alloc_pages()
   API, then a check is already needed in the driver to switch
   between those two API, it might be better to reuse that check.

"First the page pool is only available if the bm is not used.
The page pool is also not allocated when the port is stopped.
It can also be not allocated in case of errors."
