Yep, there is a little confusion for pci_num_vf():
1. it is available when CONFIG_PCI_IOV is defined.
2. it is introduced from upstream kernel v2.6.34 (fb8a0d9)
3. it is implemented from RHEL6.0, although the kernel version is 2.6.32.

The logic of this patch is:

Firstly it detects kernel version, if it is less than 2.6.34, and it is 
not RHEL-specified, then define pci_num_vf().

Secondly, it deals with RHEL-specified. If it is RHEL6.0 or later, and 
CONFIG_PCI_IOV is defined. we should not define pci_num_vf(). If any of 
these conditions is not reached, pci_num_vf() should be defined.

Some days ago, I setup dpdk for longterm kernel, and got error:
CC [M] 
In function ‘show_max_vfs’:
error: implicit declaration of function ‘pci_num_vf’

This problem is introduced by commit 11ba04265

igb_uio: fix build on RHEL 6.3

- pci_num_vf() is already defined in RHEL 6
- pci_intx_mask_supported is already defined in RHEL 6.3
- pci_check_and_mask_intx is already defined in RHEL 6.3

+ !defined(CONFIG_PCI_IOV)

That is because longterm kernel defined CONFIG_PCI_IOV, but it 
lacks pci_num_vf(),
after above processing, pci_num_vf() is still not existed, then build fail.

My patch could work around it, and can deal with RHEL-specified kernel.
