I admit the ifcvf_adapter is not correctly ref-counted. What you suggest
should work. But it looks to me the following is more cleaner since the
members of ifcvf_adapter are all related to PCI device not vDPA itself.

- keep the current layout of ifcvf_adapter
- merge vdpa_alloc_device() and vdpa_register_device()
- use devres to bind ifcvf_adapter refcnt/lifcycle to the under PCI device

If we go for the container_of method, we probably need

- accept a size of parent parent structure in vdpa_alloc_device() and
mandate vdpa_device to be the first member of ifcvf_adapter
- we need provide a way to free resources of parent structure when we
destroy vDPA device

What's your thought?

Right, will fix.

Thanks
