Patch #A: hv_netvsc: pair VF based on serial number
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/?id=00d7ddba1143623b31bc2c15d18216e2da031b14

Patch #B: hv_netvsc: fix vf serial matching with pci slot info
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/?id=005479556197f80139771960dda0dfdcd2d2aad5

The patch #A is a feature that use VF serial number for matching. But #A has a bug causing mismatch.

Patch #B, upstream now (see the link to Linux-next), is a fix to #A.

So, if #A is ported to 4.18, we need to port #B together. Otherwise, not porting both the #A and #B is also fine.

Thanks,
- Haiyang
