    Subject[PATCH v10 0/7] PCI: Linux kernel SR-IOV support
    Date
    Greetings,

    Following patches are intended to support SR-IOV capability in the
    Linux kernel. With these patches, people can turn a PCI device with
    the capability into multiple ones from software perspective, which
    will benefit KVM and achieve other purposes such as QoS, security,
    and etc.

    SR-IOV specification can be found at:
    http://www.pcisig.com/members/downloads/specifications/iov/sr-iov1.0_11Sep07.pdf
    (it requires membership.)

    Devices that support SR-IOV are available from following vendors:

    Physical Function driver patches for Intel 82576 NIC are available:

    http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/8064/
    http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/8065/
    http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/8066/

    Major changes from v9 to v10:
    1, minor fix in pci_restore_iov_state().
    2, respin against the latest tree.

    Yu Zhao (7):
    PCI: initialize and release SR-IOV capability
    PCI: restore saved SR-IOV state
    PCI: reserve bus range for SR-IOV device
    PCI: add SR-IOV API for Physical Function driver
    PCI: handle SR-IOV Virtual Function Migration
    PCI: document SR-IOV sysfs entries
    PCI: manual for SR-IOV user and driver developer
