Yes, the support for floating VEBs is and WAS broken prior this patch 
and it is fixed by the following patch.

Prior this patch... Let's vsi_seid == 0:

	/* make sure there is such a vsi and uplink */
	i40e_pf_for_each_vsi(pf, vsi_idx, vsi)
		if (vsi->seid == vsi_seid)
			break;
-> here vsi_idx == pf->num_alloc_vsi because there cannot be VSI with 
SEID == 0... and VSI points after the pf->vsi[] array.

	if (vsi_idx == pf->num_alloc_vsi && vsi_seid != 0) {
		dev_info(&pf->pdev->dev, "vsi seid %d not found\n",
			 vsi_seid);
		return NULL;
	}

This condition is not met, although vsi_idx == pf->num_alloc_vsi but 
vsi_seid == 0 so the rest of code ended by:

	ret = i40e_add_veb(veb, vsi);

and vsi pointer points to invalid area (item after the last one from 
pf->vsi).

As I mentioned the broken floating VEB functionality (where vsi_seid == 
0 and uplink_seid == 0) is fixed by the following patch.

Thanks,
Ivan
