Subject: [PATCH] pci-hyperv: Use device serial number as PCI domain

This allows PCI domain numbers starts with 1, and also unique
on the same VM. So names, such as VF NIC names, that include
domain number as part of the name, can be shorter than that
based on part of bus UUID previously. The new names will also
stay same for VMs created with copied VHD and same number of
