Agreed. Any hacks we put in for normal VFs are going to be needed for
the passed-though VF case. Only applying the memory space enable
workaround doesn't make sense to me either.

A pci_is_virtfn() helper would be better than open coding both checks
everywhere. That said, it might be solving the wrong problem. The
union between ->physfn and ->sriov has always seemed like a footgun to
me so we might be better off switching the users who want a physfn to
a helper instead. i.e.

struct pci_dev *pci_get_vf_physfn(struct pci_dev *vf)
{
        if (!vf->is_virtfn)
                return NULL;

        return vf->physfn;
}

...

pf = pci_get_vf_physfn(vf)
if (pf)
    /* do pf things */

Then we can just use ->is_virtfn for the normal and detached cases.
