Hi Avi

For kernel side, patch 2 is not necessary. Because kernel would read VID/DID
directly from pci_dev rather than configuration space, which have been set
properly already.

And very sorry, for the patch 3. We haven't known exactly what's happened. I
think the problem is caused by guest driver, but didn't confirm(and I have
some misunderstandings with ZhaoYu for I thought we are agree on the reason,
but after confirm with him, he didn't agree). I am doing more investigations
to find the real cause.
