Subject: Re: [PATCH v4 net-next 0/2] ionic: add sriov support

From: Shannon Nelson <>
Date: Fri,  3 Jan 2020 09:55:06 -0800

> Set up the basic support for enabling SR-IOV devices in the
> ionic driver.  Since most of the management work happens in
> the NIC firmware, the driver becomes mostly a pass-through
> for the network stack commands that want to control and
> configure the VFs.
> v4:	changed "vf too big" checks to use pci_num_vf()
> 	changed from vf[] array of pointers of individually allocated
> 	  vf structs to single allocated vfs[] array of vf structs
> 	added clean up of vfs[] on probe fail
> 	added setup for vf stats dma
> v3:	added check in probe for pre-existing VFs
> 	split out the alloc and dealloc of vf structs to better deal
> 	  with pre-existing VFs (left enabled on remove)
> 	restored the checks for vf too big because of a potential
> 	  case where VFs are already enabled but driver failed to
> 	  alloc the vf structs
> v2:	use pci_num_vf() and kcalloc()
> 	remove checks for vf too big
> 	add locking for the VF operations
> 	disable VFs in ionic_remove() if they are still running

Series applied, thanks Shannon.
