Merge branch 'hv_netvsc-associate-VF-and-PV-device-by-serial-number'
Stephen Hemminger says: ==================== hv_netvsc: associate VF and PV device by serial number The Hyper-V implementation of PCI controller has concept of 32 bit serial number (not to be confused with PCI-E serial number). This value is sent in the protocol from the host to indicate SR-IOV VF device is attached to a synthetic NIC. Using the serial number (instead of MAC address) to associate the two devices avoids lots of potential problems when there are duplicate MAC addresses from tunnels or layered devices. The patch set is broken into two parts, one is for the PCI controller and the other is for the netvsc device. Normally, these go through different trees but sending them together here for better review. The PCI changes were submitted previously, but the main review comment was "why do you need this?". This is why. v2 - slot name can be shorter. remove locking when creating pci_slots; see comment for explaination ==================== Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <firstname.lastname@example.org>
