Hi Jason,

Thanks for your comments, but I failed to understand this. In IFCVF
driver, we call ifcvf_vdpa_attach() at the end at probe(),
at this point, PCIE initialization almost done, then try to alloc vdpa
device, if successful, we can register it to VDPA bus.

Are you suggesting to wait for anything else done?

THanks,
