I see. I thought your patches addressing issue related to 
http://patches.dpdk.org/patch/53590/

Where checkpatch.sh complaints when we add new internal driver API with
out rte_experimental? That's where all the discussion started.
The reason why I was saying the API name prefix to mark as internal API is
that checkpatch can detect that case.

Example:
ERROR: symbol otx2_mbox_alloc_msg_rsp is added in the DPDK_19.05 section, but is expected to be added in the EXPERIMENTAL section of the version map
