Subject: [PATCH net 4/4] net/mlx4_core: Don't issue PCIe speed/width checks for VFs

From: Eyal Perry <>

Carrying out PCI speed/width checks through pcie_get_minimum_link()
on VFs yield wrong results, so remove them.

Fixes: b912b2f ('net/mlx4_core: Warn if device doesn't have enough PCI bandwidth')
