OK, thanks... I was staring at the dmesg output you sent me and it is odd because the even numbered VFs that go missing are there when you set their MAC addresses. See output below the dotted line after my reply.

Also, the dmesg output indicates 28 VFs are created but the lspci output you've sent only shows 14, even from the stock FC 14 kernel. So even in that case you seem to be missing 14 VFs from the lspci output.

So they're there at one point but then disappear. Very odd. I'm finishing up a few other things but will try to repro ASAP and get back to you with my results.
