Not sure I like this one either. Distros will want to enable IOV by
default, but in most configs users still won't use it, and many BIOSes
won't bother to allocate IOV space. So defaulting to trying to do so
will likely cause a lot of unnecessary re-allocation.

So distro guidance would be appreciated here for the default behavior.
