In this series only representor netdevice corresponds to sub-function will be visible in ip link show, i.e. eni10npf0sf44.

Netdevsim is only simulating the eswitch side or control path at present for pf/vf/sf ports.
So other end of this port (netdevice/rdma device/vdpa device) are not yet created.

Subfunction will be anchored on virtbus described in RFC [1], which is not yet in-kernel yet.
Grep for "every SF a device is created on virtbus" to jump to this part of the long RFC.
