But this won't be using DPDK on some PFs, you are indeed suggesting to create
VFs and use them via DPDK instead. And should the PF not bound to any kernel driver?

For sharing an adapter between DPDK and Linux drivers, we are suggesting to use DPDK on a VF created on PFs. All the PFs would be bound to Linux drivers(qed/qede). I'll send out a v2 with modified text for more clarity.

Thanks!
