I'm a little late looking at this code.  But a question:  Is it possible for
netvsc_resume() to be called before the VF driver's resume function
is called?  If so, is it possible for netvsc_vf_changed() to find that the VF
is not up, and hence to switch the data path away from the VF instead of
to the VF?
