It's doable. Will enhance the pci_setup_device and use it to setup the VF.

Yes, but unfortunately we can't create links before adding a device.
I double checked device_add(), there is no place for those links to be
created before it sends uevent. So for now, we have to trigger another
uevent for those links.

The PF driver patches I listed before support dynamical enabling/disabling
of the SR-IOV through sysfs interface. So we have to protect the VF bus
allocation as I explained before.

Yes, will replace %d to %u.

Yes, will do

It's defined by spec as:

3.3.8. Function Dependency Link (12h)
The programming model for a Device may have vendor specific dependencies
between sets of Functions. The Function Dependency Link field is used to
describe these dependencies. This field describes dependencies between PFs.
VF dependencies are the same as the dependencies of their associated PFs.
If a PF is independent from other PFs of a Device, this field shall
contain its own Function Number. If a PF is dependent on other PFs of a
Device, this field shall contain the Function Number of the next PF in
the same Function Dependency List. The last PF in a Function Dependency
List shall contain the Function Number of the first PF in the Function
Dependency List. If PF p and PF q are in the same Function Dependency
List, than any SI that is assigned VF p,n shall also be assigned to VF q,n.

Thanks,
Yu
