> opened without consideration for a VF token and we'd require the
> hypservisor to close and re-open the PF in order to set a known VF token,
> which is impractical.

> The synopsis of this series is that we have an ongoing desire to drive PCIe SR-
> IOV PFs from userspace with VFIO.  There's an immediate need for this with
> DPDK drivers and potentially interesting future use cases in virtualization.
> We've been reluctant to add this support previously due to the dependency
> and trust relationship between the VF device and PF driver.  Minimally the PF
> driver can induce a denial of service to the VF, but depending on the specific
> implementation, the PF driver might also be responsible for moving data
> between VFs or have direct access to the state of the VF, including data or
> state otherwise private to the VF or VF driver.
> 
> To help resolve these concerns, we introduce a VF token into the VFIO PCI
> ABI, which acts as a shared secret key between drivers.  The userspace PF
> driver is required to set the VF token to a known value and userspace VF
> drivers are required to provide the token to access the VF device.  If a PF
> driver is restarted with VF drivers in use, it must also provide the current
> token in order to prevent a rogue untrusted PF driver from replacing a known
> driver.  The degree to which this new token is considered secret is left to the
> userspace drivers, the kernel intentionally provides no means to retrieve the
> current token.
