All my X710 X540 X520 VF work well with igb_uio under DPDK 18.11/19.11.

But I never test vfio-pci due to its limitation.
1.vfio-pci module doesn’t support the creation of virtual functions.
2.Any Virtual Function device can be used with VFIO on its own, but physical devices will require either all ports bound to VFIO, or some of them bound to VFIO while others not being bound to anything at all.

Could you provide your VF configuration?

Does your DPDK application processes packets header field correct?
