How does this address my comments?

We will not define Linux APIs based on what your firmware can or 
cannot do today. Can we somehow avoid having another frustrating
and drawn out discussion that hinges on that point?

Otherwise, why the global policy and all the hoops to jump thru?
User wants a device with a vnet, give them a device with a vnet.

You left out from your steps how ESW learns that the device has 
to be spawned. Given there's some form of communication between
user intent and ESW the location of the two is completely irrelevant.
You were right to treat the two cases as equivalent in the cover 
letter for v1.
