Hmmm, I am not sure. I think the bind/unbind is strictly a per device
attribute.
Yi, could you comment on the use via VFIO or QEMU?

We removed it because we want the config data to be model agnostic. Any
sanity check should be done via some query interface, e.g. sysfs, to
ensure model matching. Once set up, there is no need to embed model info
in every bind operation.

sure, I will remove it for now.
