Oh, sorry, I misunderstood! I was thinking that you were adding
"vf_did" to the VF directory, not the PF directory.

Then I guess my only issue is that "vf_did" doesn't match the pattern
of other names. I think "virtfn_device" would give more of a hint and
would match "device" and "subsystem_device".
