the concept of VDEV includes both software bits and ADIs. If you
only take about hardware types, using ADI is more accurate.

ADI is just a term for minimally assignable resource in Scalable IOV.
'assignable' implies several things, e.g. the resource can be independently
mapped to/accessed by user space or guest, DMAs between two
ADIs are isolated, operating one ADI doesn't affecting another ADI,
etc. I'm not clear about other vendor specific interfaces, but supposing
they need match the similar requirements. Then do we really want to
differentiate ADI vs. SF? What about merging them with ADI as just
one example of finer-grained slicing?
