NAMEPCI_IOV_ADD_VF - inform a PF driver that a VF is being created
SYNOPSISIn sys/bus.h In machine/stdarg.h In sys/nv.h In dev/pci/pci_iov.h Ft int Fn PCI_IOV_ADD_VF device_t dev uint16_t vfnum const nvlist_t *vf_config
DESCRIPTIONThe Fn PCI_IOV_ADD_VF method is called by the PCI Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) infrastructure when it is initializating a new Virtual Function (VF) as a child of the given Physical Function (PF) device. This method will not be called until a successful call to PCI_IOV_INIT9 has been made. It is not guaranteed that this method will be called following a successful call to PCI_IOV_INIT9. If the infrastructure encounters a failure to allocate resources following the call to PCI_IOV_INIT9, the VF creation will be aborted and PCI_IOV_UNINIT9 will be called immediately without any preceding calls to .
The index of the VF being initialized is passed in the Fa vfnum argument. VFs are always numbered sequentially starting at 0.
If the driver requested device-specific configuration parameters via a VF schema in its call to pci_iov_attach9, those parameters will be contained in the vf_config argument. All configuration parameters that were either set as required parameters or that had a default value set in the VF schema are guaranteed to be present in Fa vf_config . Configuration parameters that were neither set as required nor were given a default value are optional and may or may not be present in Fa vf_config . Fa vf_config will not contain any configuration parameters that were not specified in the VF schema. All configuration parameters will have the correct type and will be in the range of valid values specified in the schema.
Note that it is possible for the user to set different configuration values on different VF devices that are children of the same PF. The PF driver must not cache configuration parameters passed in previous calls to Fn PCI_IOV_ADD_VF for other VFs and apply those parameters to the current VF.
This function will not be called twice for the same Fa vf_num on the same PF device without PCI_IOV_UNINIT9 and PCI_IOV_INIT9 first being called, in that order.
