Subject: [Patch v2] hv_netvsc: Mark VF as slave before exposing it to user-mode

From: Long Li <longli@...rosoft.com>

When a VF is being exposed form the kernel, it should be marked as "slave"
before exposing to the user-mode. The VF is not usable without netvsc running
as master. The user-mode should never see a VF without the "slave" flag.

This commit moves the code of setting the slave flag to the time before VF is
exposed to user-mode.

Signed-off-by: Long Li <longli@...rosoft.com>

Change since v1:
Use a new function to handle NETDEV_POST_INIT.
