The subject title implies that this is implementing a new feature (and
thus not really a good candidate for net), but the content implies this
is a fix for an existing feature thats not working properly.

It could use a slightly improved commit message.

Typically the author signed-off-by should go first, and then other
signed-off-by are for people in the chain of patch delivery. If the
other two co-authored the patch they should have Co-developed-by tag or
something. Otherwise I would expect that Subbaraya Sundeepd would be the
patch author since that signed-off-by is first.

The fix itself seems straight forward, though the comment is confusing
to me. You also changed the return from -ENODEV to -EPERM which makes
sense enough I suppose, but thats not called out in the change.

This comment implies to me that we wouldn't expect this message from a VF?
