Subject: [pci PATCH v6 2/5] virtio_pci: Add support for unmanaged SR-IOV on
 virtio_pci devices

From: Alexander Duyck <>

Hardware-realized virtio_pci devices can implement SR-IOV, so this
patch enables its use. The device in question is an upcoming Intel
NIC that implements both a virtio_net PF and virtio_net VFs. These
are hardware realizations of what has been up to now been a software

The device in question has the following 4-part PCI IDs:

PF: vendor: 1af4 device: 1041 subvendor: 8086 subdevice: 15fe
VF: vendor: 1af4 device: 1041 subvendor: 8086 subdevice: 05fe

The patch currently needs no check for device ID, because the callback
will never be made for devices that do not assert the capability or
when run on a platform incapable of SR-IOV.

One reason for this patch is because the hardware requires the
vendor ID of a VF to be the same as the vendor ID of the PF that
created it. So it seemed logical to simply have a fully-functioning
virtio_net PF create the VFs. This patch makes that possible.

v4: Dropped call to pci_disable_sriov in virtio_pci_remove function
v5: Replaced call to pci_sriov_configure_unmanaged with
v6: Dropped "#ifdef" checks for IOV wrapping sriov_configure definition
